Subject

Tourism

Our extended tourism management degree will give you the skills in marketing, management and enterprise that you’ll need to succeed in this buoyant industry.

Our extended tourism management degree is identical to the three-year degree but includes a foundation year to prepare you for the rest of your study.

In Britain, around 2.6 million people work in the tourism industry, and it's one of the world's fastest growing business sectors. This course will give you a thorough understanding of tourism marketing, human resource management, innovation, product development and destination management, preparing you for a range of tourism careers. The Erasmus+ student exchange programme is also currently part of this course.

Our graduates take up roles in tourism marketing, tourism policy, destination management, and tour operator businesses. They also launch their own tourism enterprises.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

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 better last year than many of the other graduates under this subject umbrella - but all did about as well as graduates on average or a little better. 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.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
