The programme combines a theoretical and practical approach to provide a vocational and intellectually challenging education to enhance your knowledge, skills and appeal to a broader international market. It is intended to cater for those with an appropriate undergraduate qualification who aspire to a career in the area of tourism and attraction management. Emphasis is placed on developing a range of professional, managerial and transferable skills aligned with an extensive knowledge of management disciplines applicable to understanding both attraction and tourism management today.
The PGDip/MSc in International Tourism and Attraction Management has been designed to meet such challenges and provide a curriculum which will enhance the knowledge and skills of its students and ensure that they are able to cope with the variety of possible roles and responsibilities that follow.
The programme is a 12 month programme comprising three parts. The first two parts are the taught element and the final part is consists of research and writing the dissertation element. The taught element focuses on key aspects of tourism and management.
For full-time students the taught element is normally completed over a nine month period starting in October. Part-time students will normally attend on a one day a week basis and complete the taught element in two years. Students who complete the taught element of the programme, in part or in its entirety, may graduate with either a Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma in International Tourism and Attraction Management. Students wishing to complete the Master of Science in International Tourism and Attraction Management must complete the research element. The research element comprises a dissertation. Full-time students will normally complete this in the three months that follow the taught element, whilst part-time students complete this during the course of an academic session.
Students require a good honours degree (or equivalent) in a subject related to tourism, business or leisure management. It would normally be expected that this degree be awarded at the level of lower second class or above. Other graduates who can demonstrate a commitment to the study of tourism management or who have significant experience in the tourism industry will also be considered for entry.
