If you already have an HND or foundation degree, this course will allow you to top it up to an honours degree with just one year of additional study. You’ll build on your all-round knowledge of business, adding a strong emphasis on hospitality and tourism management within a global context. The course includes specialist modules that cover key issues for hospitality and tourism managers as well as the business of conferences, events and entertainment. There is also a module on international hospitality management, which will give you a wider perspective on operational practices and strategic decision making processes. Northumbria is the only university in the North East of England to be recognised as a Centre of Excellence by the Institute of Travel and Tourism, which is the UK’s professional body for the travel and tourism industry. There’s plenty of support for you to develop the academic study skills that are required. Whatever your background, we’ll help you take the more critical, deeper and research-informed approach that’s needed for an honours degree at a UK university. The degree is designed to be a stepping stone to jobs and promotion in the hospitality and tourism industry, which employs 10% of the UK workforce. It’s the country’s fourth largest industry, according to the British Hospitality Association. The relevance, rigour and internationalisation of the course are set to meet some of the highest and most demanding levels of accreditation. The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at the Times Higher Education Awards 2015.

Extensive feedback from both tutors and peers is built into the course.
