Bournemouth is the perfect location to study tourism, being a popular seaside resort with many tourism and hospitality businesses and opportunities.

Accredited by the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) and the Tourism Management Institute and recognised as an Institute of Travel and Tourism (ITT) Centre of Excellence, our four-year course was one of the first to be offered in the UK and has been refined over three decades to give you an excellent understanding of how private and public organisations work together within the tourism sector.

You’ll develop management and business skills that are essential to get ahead in this industry and in your final year, you’ll have a choice of modules, allowing you to tailor your degree to suit your interests and career goals.

You’ll have an opportunity to learn a new language; French, Spanish or Mandarin as well as residential fieldtrips in the UK and overseas which have included Jersey and Malta. You can also expand your horizons and spend some time studying abroad with one of our 40 partner institutions in the USA, Australia, Europe and Asia.

What’s more a 30-week supervised work placement in the UK or overseas will give you the opportunity to turn theory into practice in a business environment, ensuring you gain practical experience that could help you secure a management-level position immediately after graduating. 95% of our students are working or studying 6 months after graduating (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education, 2018).

This course is taught by specialists who are actively involved in research that informs the future of the industry; as well as notable experts who share their expertise during regular guest lectures.

Undergraduate students who will successfully complete the Digital Marketing unit have the opportunity to achieve the IDM qualification level 4 Certificate in Digital Marketing, as a result of exemptions awarded by the IDM for the Digital Marketing unit.
