Program description

Tourism and Travel Management (Including Foundation Year) BA (Hons) (Full-time)

Our Tourism and Travel Management (including foundation year) BA (Hons) degree is a four-year course with a built-in foundation year (Year 0).

It provides a gateway to a career in one of the world’s biggest service sectors and is the perfect start to your university education if you don’t meet the entry requirements to start our standard three-year degree program.

The degree will offer you close links with tourism businesses and public organisations through membership of the Tourism Management Institute.

Our Tourism and Travel Management (including foundation year) BA (Hons) degree is ideal if you’re looking to enter a managerial career in the tourism and travel industry.

During your foundation degree you will learn key business skills and increase your academic confidence. You’ll share this introductory year with students studying some of our other business-related degrees, allowing you to share perspectives and gain a broad knowledge of business and management.

As you progress into the second year of the course, you will study the same course content and get the same choice of modules as those who study our three-year Tourism and Travel Management BA course.

Our course is continually evolving and improving to take into account the latest challenges in the industry. You'll learn about cultural heritage, sustainable tourism and tourism-led regeneration as well as having the opportunity to examine niche tourism products.

Admission requirements

  • at least one A level (or a minimum of 32 UCAS points from an equivalent Level 3 qualification, eg BTEC Subsidiary/National/BTEC Extended Diploma)
  • English Language GCSE at grade C/4 or above (or equivalent)
