**Why Air Transport and Logistics Management?
We live in a globalised world where people travel further and more often for business and for pleasure. That places more and more demand on airlines. The course will give you the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills required for an exciting and challenging career in airlines, air freight, freight forwarders, express couriers and general logistics or supply chain management.**

How will I learn?
You will learn through practical application and delivered lectures, workshops, seminars and group work sessions:
- The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).

- You’ll study core subjects like finance, economics, HR management, marketing and strategic management.

- You'll also study the specialist knowledge required for a career in the various parts of the air industry or within the logistics sector. So you can begin to shape your own course and create your ideal career path.

- Many of your lecturers have worked in the commercial world, with a range of experience across world-leading companies like Argos, Hallmark Cards and Unilever.

- We’ve also developed a large number of contacts in the industry such as Jet2 and DHL. You’ll have the chance to hear some inspiring guest lectures, and go on site visits.

- Most importantly, you could take an optional work placement with a business in the aviation industry.

The emphasis is on giving you a chance to gain the skills to secure a great career. The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

The stats cover quite a broad subject area, but over half of the graduates we're talking about here studied some kind of audio technology subject. It's not a surprise, then, to find that the most common job for graduates from this subject last year was as a sound technician in film, TV and music. Jobs in IT, as arts officers or musicians, in marketing, or in business were also popular — these degrees can be quite flexible and give you a lot of opportunities. Another degree that falls under this heading is in transport logistics (told you it was broad!), and those graduates did particularly well as our whole just-in-time retail economy really needs good logistics skills - and graduates with those qualifications are in serious shortage. But your prospects do depend on the particular degree you take, so if you have a course in mind, take a look at the information on the university's website.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This subject includes degrees in urban studies and housing as well as planning qualifications. Be a little careful when looking at the stats, as most jobs in planning, especially in town planning, go to Masters students in the subject — planning is a very popular Master's degree (and even then we don't actually have enough graduates to meet employer demand). So if you want a job in planning, expect to stay on at university after you have finished your first degree. First degree graduates in planning are more likely to start working in surveying than planning roles - although that is partly down to our serious shortage of surveyors. This all adds up to a subject that is in demand - but do keep a look out for work experience opportunities to make your good prospects even better.

What about your long term prospects?

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

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
