THE STUDY PROGRAMME
This programme is intended as a ‘conversion’ programme and is designed to cater for the needs of students who have not studied tourism as their first degree. It aims to give students an advanced understanding of the tourism industry and a managerial perspective of how to run organisations within this industry. This programme is intended to address the industry’s need for graduates with the knowledge, understanding and experience to take up managerial roles within tourism (or hospitality).

You'll be expected to study a minimum of three units per year, along with your dissertation towards the end of your second year.
