Tourism, Leisure and Hospitality, Foundation Degree at City of Liverpool College University Centre - UCAS

Course summary

The Foundation Degree in Tourism, Leisure and Hospitality is a two-year course that is designed for students who are looking to step into the dynamic Travel, Tourism or Hospitality sector. With the huge growth in the local visitor economy together with the global nature of the service sector, students will join a course where a career and an exciting future awaits. Students are taught by industry experts who can help students to build their academic and Travel and Tourism skills, thus enabling them to progress onto the final year of the BA (Hons) International Tourism Management at Liverpool John Moores University. The rationale for foundation degrees centres on the 'thinking practitioner' by linking theory and practice to develop students’ effective management and operational skills. The course is academic, broad based and is designed to provide students with the ability to understand and apply fundamental theories and concepts of tourism, leisure and hospitality to a variety of industry scenarios.


The modules studied will include the following: Level 4 (Year 1): • Introduction to International Tourism • Personal and Academic Development • Customer Experience in Tourism, Leisure and Hospitality • Professional Development 1 • Tourism, Leisure and Hospitality in Liverpool • Impacts of Tourism Level 5 (Year 2): • Digital Marketing • Events Management • Revenue Management • Professional Development 2 • Research Methods • Responsible Tourism and Sustainability Work experience, placement or a job in a related industry are an essential part of the programme. It is feasible to utilise existing employment if the employer is in agreement. For students who are not employed in the industry, the onus is on the student to identify and acquire their own placement, however assistance will be given.

Assessment method

The programme is assessed through a variety of methods including: essays, formal reports, reflective critiques, individual presentations, academic poster, a debate and a group discussion. Assessment of work-based learning is evidenced through the production of a self-reflective document, examining 'critical incidents' in depth. In a number of modules, the employer has 10% of the student's mark and gives individual feedback on a number of competencies: self-management and development; managing tasks; communicating clearly and effectively; working with and relating to others; applying initiative in work problems; the ability to meet learning outcomes.
