You will be attracted to this course if you wish to travel and see the world; have a clear vision of far off places or you may want to develop tourism destinations closer to home!

If you are inquisitive by nature and are motivated to work in a customer-based industry, international tourism could be the study programme for you. We base our course on a mixture of trips and visits along with lectures and seminars so that you have plenty of opportunity to relate the information from your trips into reports or presentations for assessments.

Our employer-led approach gives us an unparalleled insight into the skills priorities for the future, and the opportunity for you to gain experience from tourism activities as diverse as visiting a Devon-based spa resort to planning an event in our purpose-built fuselage.

As part of this course, you will also study for your personal licence at no extra cost.

The variety of opportunities and the range of people that form part of the course will prepare you for a long and successful career in this industry.
