Course in brief

Our programme offers an innovative and visionary approach in the study of tourism as both economic and social phenomena. Our view is that tourism has become an integral part of history, culture and economies for many regions of the world. This has had a powerful influence on identity, representation and business environments in developed as well as less developing nations. On a global scale the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) forecasts an increase in the number of international arrivals in the region of 1.6 billion by the year 2020. As such the industry needs people who understand the significance, complexity and dynamics of a diverse evolving, developing and growing sector. Our International Tourism Management MSc recognises both the continuing importance and value of the global tourism industry in economic terms and the significance of its social, political and environmental implications.

The programme of learning is delivered through the Tourism Policy, Practice and Performance (TPPP) hub, an affiliate member of the UNWTO.

Course structure

Full-time students attend workshops on two days per week with the part-time route usually requiring one day per week. Teaching methods include group work, case studies, presentations, and live projects.

Areas of study

Core management studies including strategy, operations management, finance, marketing and human resources are integrated with specialist subjects that address the key needs of the international tourism industry. The course seeks to address contemporary issues in sustainable tourism development and management and is cross-disciplinary in nature drawing on themes such as regional studies, anthropology, visual culture and special interest tourism.

Course in brief

For international organisations such as the World Bank and the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), and also national ministries and regional development agencies, tourism is an important means of economic diversification, poverty reduction and socio-economic integration.

It offers a way to bring relative prosperity to a region through additional revenue streams and a raised public profile. UNWTO argue that developing countries in particular benefit from this process and make it their aim to faciliate it, all the while minimising the potentially negative impact on the environment and cultural integrity.

Our Tourism and International Development MSc aligns with the missions of UNWTO and focuses on the role of tourism as an agent of development and as a vehicle to sustainable change both at a micro and a macro level. The programme is delivered through the Tourism Policy, Practice and Performance (TPPP) hub, a research organisation and affiliate member of UNWTO.

Course structure

Full-time students attend classes two days per week, while part-time students usually attend once per week. Some modules and field-based activities may require attendance on consecutive days.

Teaching methods include lectures, seminars, workshops and live scenarios. You are also expected to engage in a high degree of self-directed learning.

For international students, the MSc also offers an extended masters route with English language study for between two and sixth months before the course begins.

- Sports programming landscape in the UK and worldwide

This will explore the outlets for domestic sports programming and the relationship between producers, facilities suppliers, rights holders and broadcasters. Which broadcasters and which channels have access to particular sports and how that is scheduled will be examined. The differences between dedicated sports channels and mixed programming channels and their requirements will be discussed, particularly with regard to scheduling and planning for over-running events.

International sports broadcasters and their relationships with UK producers will be explored and the differences between producing programming for a domestic and an international audience will be detailed.

- Producing Sports and Live Events

This takes students through the production process from planning and pre-production through to transmission. Students will receive instruction and mentoring throughout a production period which will involve researching, shooting and editing single camera items (Broadcast Production students will be available to help with at least some of this), researching and editing archive footage, producing graphics and music assets and booking presenters and guests. Students will also be given a recording of a football match and having logged it, will, prepare a 10 minute highlight package for use in the programme, with the assistance of an editor. The final product will be an 'as live' sports feature programme. Working in teams, each team will produce a short show recorded in the NFTS TV Studio.

- Developing, pitching and responding to RFPs

Both broadcaster in-house and production company development, pitching and costing will be examined together with authoring documentation and presentations for both Requests For Information and Proposal (RFI/RFP). The skills and knowledge are needed to make up an RFP team will be discussed. In addition to broadcasters, event organisers, rights holders and sports governing bodies may also issue an RFP. The differences in approach required across a range of potential clients will be examined and a practice RFP will be issued to students as an exercise for them to respond to. Production Management and Technical advice will be available to the students.

Each sport has its particular requirements and restrictions. A thorough knowledge of these has to be demonstrated in bid documentation and presentations. This module will include briefings on major sports and their particular issues.

- Managing people and being managed

As a leader you are successful if you deliver your objectives and people want to work for you again. Leadership skills will form part of this module as these are critical to getting the best out of production, craft, technical and, of course, performers. The management, as distinct from leadership, of both staff and on-screen talent will be looked at. This module will also consider how to be effectively managed by Heads of Department/Production.

- Understanding the commercials

This deals with many of the issues that confront sports producers on a daily basis in an increasingly complex and fragmented media distribution landscape. Budgets and how to prepare and manage them will be examined and the importance of scheduling and its contractual implications will be discussed. A contract may stipulate a minimum number of matches that have to be shown irrespective of whether there is still mass viewer interest in the tournament after the ‘local’ team has been knocked out. Live rights and deferred highlights will also be covered as will the importance of ‘new media’ and distribution over IP rights

- Placement

Each student will complete a four week internship at IMG.

- Specialist Workshops and Exercises

During the course there will be a range of other specialist workshops on topics including digital content and formats, social media and mobile applications and risk management.

- Graduation Projects with IMG

The final part of the course allows students to produce projects with teaching and preparation being done at the NFTS and at IMG. Participants will use IMG facilities and help from IMG staff, including access to incoming sports feeds, archive material, editing and studio time to create exemplar coverage of major sporting events. For example, participants might create a Ryder Cup highlights show, a live presenter led insert for the World Snooker Championships a look ahead to the Grand National or a studio based ‘Look back at the year’ with guests, clips and live inserts. Graduation Project subject matter will be different each year depending on access and the sporting calendar.

NFTS BENEFITS

Sports course participants will have full access to the NFTS’ optional creative stimulus strands, including: Passport to Cinema (weekly screenings of classic and pre-release films in the state-of-the-art campus cinema); and NFTS Masterclasses - major creative figures from film, television and games screening their work and discussing with students in the campus cinema. Recent speakers include David Fincher (Director, Seven, Gone Girl), Andy Wilman (Executive Producer, Top Gear), Graham Linehan (The IT Crowd, Father Ted) and Hamish Hamilton (Director, Super Bowl XLVIII).
