About the course This course focuses on the 'world' of tourism, the 'world' of the tourist, the virtual and real 'world' of travel and tourism and the 'world' of employment in tourism. The course is about how you will fit into that changing world of tourism, achieved by giving you access to knowledge about 21st Century destinations, management practices, marketing techniques and products.

How you’ll learn You will be taught using lectures and group seminars. And as we have an 'open door policy', you'll be able to speak to your tutor if you need extra help with your studies. Fieldtrips During your first year, you will go on several fieldtrips and visits to tourism service providers, such as airports, stately homes and local tourism hotspots, including Dovedale and the Derwent Valley Heritage Corridor.
