  • Course description
    Tourism Planning and Management BA Honours.

    Course summary:

    Tourism continues to be a major component of the global economy and has now become an established academic discipline, with roots in geography, economics, sociology, planning and business. The University of Westminster has over 20 years of expertise in tourism education and research, and we are consistently ranked as one of the top universities for teaching quality and research output in the discipline. Our long history dating back to the 1830s includes a signi?cant association with the early years of tour operating in Europe, and with the Olympic Games held in London in 1908 and 1948.

    Located in the heart of London, the University of Westminster offers an unrivalled and stimulating environment in which to study tourism. We have close links with partner universities in Australia, the USA, Hong Kong and Malta, allowing several students each year the opportunity to study abroad for one semester.

    The Tourism, Planning and Management BA Honours course focuses on destinations – the planning, development, management, and regeneration of destinations. This course has received full accreditation from the Tourism Management Institute (the UK’s professional organisation for destination management) for the excellence of its content. The course takes an international perspective and includes a field trip in each year of study. The course is modular, comprising core and option modules, allowing students to specialise and create their own course pathways.

    The course provides a thorough grounding in the subject and the planning/policy principles which underpin tourism, but also has a strong emphasis on skills development for the workplace, including presentation skills, research, data analysis and negotiation. Teaching methods include lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials and field study. Each student is allocated a personal tutor for academic guidance and pastoral care and the department regularly scores highly in student satisfaction surveys.
