This professionally-focused specialist degree course develops the skills, knowledge and understanding that provide a comprehensive education in the business and operational practices of the air transport industry. It is designed for people working in, or intending to work in, the airline and airport sectors. Students will be required to analyse air transport organisations in order to give a practical dimension to assignments, sometimes working in small groups or individually. Aside from what you learn in class, assessments are designed to help you develop personal qualities, such as a responsible, independent, and co-operative approach to working on your own and in teams, which are vital skills in the aviation industry. The course is vocational because it uses practical activities, such as real-world scenarios, techniques and business presentations that should help you to become a more confident senior administrator or junior manager. As the programme is the first part of a degree course, you will be given many opportunities to demonstrate and expand your interest in the environment and operations of the international air transport world.
