Surrey is one of the UK’s top universities for events, hospitality, tourism and transport, ranked number 2 in the UK by the Complete University Guide 2019, in the top 5 by the Guardian University Guide 2019, and top 10 in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018. We are also ranked 4th for hospitality and leisure management in the QS World University Rankings 2018 and ranked 5th for hospitality and tourism management in the Shanghai Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2018. We have an outstanding global reputation for teaching and research. We were the first ever University to receive the Tourism Society Award and the first in the UK to receive UNWTO TedQual certification. Our BSc International Tourism Management (with Foundation Year) course draws on this wealth of experience, helping you develop an understanding of tourism alongside a detailed study of core management and business principles. Reflecting the variety of the tourism industry, you will be able to choose from a range of optional modules alongside compulsory core topics, allowing you to specialise and develop your skills in the areas that are most relevant to your interests and future career aspirations. You will be taught by experienced and knowledgeable staff, all of whom are internationally respected experts in their research fields. Academic lectures are combined with field trips, site visits and guest lectures from industry professionals, providing you with the most up-to-date and relevant education possible. Due to our exceptional industry connections, and the relevance of our courses to current challenges in the tourism sector, our graduates are equipped to become future strategic leaders of the industry and are consequently highly attractive to employers. We’re always looking to make it easier to access the education we offer, so we have launched the option of taking a degree with a foundation year. A foundation year is an extra year of study at the start of your course that leads in to a full degree programme. It’s a great option if: • You don’t have the grades for a full degree course • You have non-traditional qualifications or experience • You’re starting university after some time away from education • You’re looking for more support during the transition into university study. During a foundation year you’ll learn about your chosen subject, develop your study skills and get used to university life. On successful completion of your foundation year, you’ll be ready to progress to the first year of your degree course. As a foundation year student, you’ll be a full student of the University and part of our community. You’ll have access to all our campus facilities and support.
