Please note this replaces BSc (Hons) Tourism Management (with Placement Year). You’re looking for a course that excites and interests you. But it needs to enhance your employment prospects too. Our full-time Business with Tourism degree will do just that. Study in Cambridge, a top tourist destination, and learn on the ground – getting involved in local projects and building up your experience. You’ll graduate with practical skills, a sound knowledge of the tourism industry, the ability to adapt to trends, and industry contacts that will benefit you throughout your career. Your eyes are wide to the world around you, and you know there’s opportunities for you out there – it’s just knowing where to start. Your curiosity and excitement will power your journey, and our Business with Tourism course will guide you. The knowledge and holistic understanding you’ll gain here will kick off your career and be the rock base on which you’ll develop your vision. Our course content and teaching style are fuelled by a forward-thinking approach. You’ll explore how the tourism industry is impacted by other disciplines, such as sociology, geography, sustainability, economics and business management. Our modules cover project management, marketing, accounting for managers, and give you a chance to acquire the kind of business skills you’ll need in real world. Don’t count on passive learning; you’ll be involved in a variety of relevant activities such as calculating your personal carbon footprint and exploring your own impact on the environment. Your study experience will be enhanced by the backdrop of a city so relevant in this industry. Cambridge is not only recognised for its prestige in education; it is also one of UK’s top touristic destinations. In a place where cultural legacy meets innovation, you will be able to benefit from ARU’s industry connections, involve yourself in local initiatives and projects, and gain a first-hand understanding of the contemporary tourism business. You’ll have opportunities to travel around Europe and get hands on experience with a work placement. The tourism industry is evolving quickly to reflect the needs of the world around us. To help you launch a career in this dynamic space, you’ll cover UK and international tourism, and the clashing influence of cultural sustainability and innovative technologies. We recognise the importance that foreign languages play in this sector, and we want you to fully benefit from what we offer. That’s why we give you a chance to study a language on top of your course-specific modules. Our Anglia Language Programme offers French, German, Spanish, Italian, Chinese and Japanese on different levels of proficiency, so you can choose what suits your needs. The employability opportunities here are countless; whether you want to be a manager of a remote hotel in Maldives, a destination marketer for a charming city in Iceland, manage a top travel agency in Sydney, be in charge of a Michelin star restaurant in Paris, or start your own sightseeing tour business in Chicago, this dream can become your new reality. We are members of the Association of Tourism in Higher Education (ATHE) and our course is recognised by the Tourism Management Institute.
