    Course description
    You follow a common core programme covering management, marketing, historical and contemporary aspects of leisure, research methods and leisure-based experiences. As the course progresses you can specialise in particular areas of leisure through choice of specialist subjects and research project work. This is supported by the three applied study periods undertaken in different sectors of leisure industries, which provide you with an opportunity to extend and apply knowledge and skills from the course in gaining experience relevant to your career choice.

    The first year course draws upon the disciplines that underpin management within the leisure sector and provides an introduction to the nature and scope of the leisure sector. This acts as a basis for a more detailed study of management and developments within the leisure sector in your second and final years. At the beginning of the first year we run a three day residential field trip to North Wales, where you will get to know other students and staff, as well as learning about management issues in the countryside. First year subjects include sociology; psychology; research methods; economics; history of leisure; marketing; leisure law and introduction to leisure management skills.

    In the second year, you study financial management; management sciences; international leisure; and leisure in contemporary society; whilst continuing with research methods; marketing and leisure law. You take a course unit in career management skills to enhance your ability to seek a host agency for your applied study period and your future employment.

    In the final year you continue with management, research and marketing and more detailed study takes place through choice of specialised subjects: running your own business; tourism management; arts and events management and sports management. The extended applied study project, a research project and the presentation of a placement report, complete your final-year work.

    Special features
    Combine academic study with practical experience, giving you flexibility of choice in career direction.

    Career opportunities
    Leisure is a wide sector of the economy with many different types of activity and employment prospects. There is a broad range of career opportunities within the leisure industries and the broad base of the course also lays a foundation for employment in other sectors. The range includes the arts, events management, entertainments, sports and recreation centres, theatres, tourism attractions and tour operators. The course is recognised by professional organisations (such as the Chartered Institute of Marketing) and successful completion of the degree will provide exemptions from certain modules in their qualifications if you decide to undertake further professional training.
