Course summary

You’re curious about the world but can also see the beauty on your doorstep. You have a long travel bucket list but are equally concerned about the impact of tourists and the sustainability of our natural and heritage assets. Our BSc (Hons) Tourism Management degree will equip you with the tools to manage tourist destinations in a sustainable and ethical way, to balance the needs of stakeholders and communities, to market a destination, and to win grants to finance projects. And as this course is part of our business portfolio, you will receive a thorough grounding in all aspects of running a successful organisation from finance, law, organisational behaviour, strategy, and marketing. While studying at ARU, you’ll make strong professional connections, build a portfolio of your tourism management experience and with regular opportunities to work with tourism and events professionals in the Peterborough area, you will increase your employability and grow in confidence. At ARU, we understand it’s important to learn and develop your skills in a practical environment and enhance your employability. That’s why we host regular visits from local employers and professionals, allowing you the chance to build a network and make connections which can come in handy after you graduate. Throughout your Tourism Management degree, you’ll get an insight into the wide variety of roles available within the industry and gain valuable professional experience in the Peterborough area which is enjoying significant investment and growth opportunities within this field. We know that your future career is important, and you want to build your CV. So, we’ll encourage you to grab every opportunity for real-world experience by building your reflective log – and should you choose this option, could also include a placement year in the industry as part of your course.
