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.

Areas of study

Coming from diverse cultures and backgrounds and with a broad range of career histories, students can expect to gain valuable insights into themes such as: development in the era of globalisation; sustainable tourism development in local economies; tourism and structural economic and regional change; myths and realities of tourism development; international cooperation, philanthropy and consultancy; global and local conflicts in tourism; and tourism's role in poverty alleviation.

Those thinking of starting a career in development or those already working in the sector who wish to consolidate and build on their professional experience will find in this MSc programme an excellent opportunity to gain theoretical and applied knowledge, to actively engage in development issues and debates from a interdisciplinary perspective and to work across sectors such as development policy, research and practice.
