Course description

The tourism programmes offer you an opportunity to study one of the worldâ??s leading, fast-moving and dynamic industries. At Chester, you will learn about how places manage and benefit from tourism. Areas you may explore further include destination planning, sustainable tourism, industry-related topics and issues, and how tourism businesses operate. All of this has led to our students being amongst the most employable tourism graduates in the UK. Teaching takes place at Queen's Park campus.

Modules

2 main strands to the course: Management aspects, such as marketing, finance, human resource management, strategy, law, all taught in a tourism context; and tourism aspects, including tourism in context, tourism planning, impact management and contemporary issues in tourism. Year 2: All students undertake a 2-month work placement with a tourism organisation. Year 3: Individual project is undertaken which allows the student to research and apply 1 or more aspects of the programme in depth, often with the assistance of 1 of the Collegeâ??s employer partners.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This course sits in a wide group of smaller subjects that don't necessarily have that much in common - so bear this in mind when you look at any employment data. Most graduates took a hospitality, events management or tourism-related course, but there are a group of sports and leisure graduates in here as well who do different things. Events management was the most common job for graduates from this group of subjects, and so it’s no surprise that graduates from specialist events management courses did a lot better last year than many of the other graduates under this subject umbrella. If you want to find out more about specific job paths for your chosen subject area, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do, or to have a look at university department websites.
