    Course overview

    Air transport is a large and dynamic international industry which often undergoes rapid change as a result of technological, economic and political developments. In order to react quickly to such developments, management and operations staff require a good understanding of the many separate and disparate subjects encompassed by the industry. The degree in Air Transport Studies has been designed to provide new entrants to the industry with much of this necessary background knowledge.

    The course is designed to give students knowledge of all major departments within an airline including management, operations and engineering.

    Teaching and assessment

    The course combines lectures, coursework, projects and examinations. There is usually at least one field trip in both of year one and year two. Coursework can include essays, practical exercises with reports and case study analyses. A significant amount of project work in the final year, both individually and in groups, consolidates research, team working, report writing and presentation skills developed throughout the course.

    The course is assessed by a combination of coursework and end-of-term examinations. Over 50 per cent of year two is assessed by project work. The contribution of each year of the course is as follows:
    Year one: 15 per cent
    Year two: 25 per cent
    Year three: 60 per cent
