About International Tourism & Hospitality Management at Bournemouth University

Underpinned by our long-standing and internationally recognised teaching and research in tourism and hospitality, this degree is suitable for those with career aspirations related to global hospitality and the wider travel and tourism industry. It will provide you with an understanding of the origins, development and organisation of the tourism and hospitality industries, and the opportunities and challenges facing organisations operating in and across the various sectors.

Global revenues and occupancy rates for the accommodation sector have increased year-on-year, as have international passenger arrivals and receipts, leading to the creation of many new jobs and small and medium-sized businesses while sustaining growth in this and other sectors such as food and drink, transport, visitor attractions and travel distribution. These changes have given rise to new opportunities but also threats for commercial and other operators and the markets and publics they serve, and the most successful businesses will be those with managers that understand how to compete in what is a dynamic and varied collection of industries. Combining the study of tourism and hospitality, and focussing on international issues means you will understand how to survive and thrive in such an environment, and be well-placed to secure graduate positions in the UK or overseas.

This course is accredited by Institute of Direct and Digital Marketing (IDM).

You’ll have an opportunity to learn a new language; French, Spanish or Mandarin as well as residential fieldtrips in the UK and overseas which have included Jersey and Malta. You can also expand your horizons and spend some time studying abroad with one of our 40 partner institutions in the USA, Australia, Europe and Asia.

In year three you’ll gain vital experience during your 30-week work placement in the UK or overseas which will give you the opportunity to turn theory into practice and build a network of professional contacts to help you secure a management-level position after graduating.

This course is taught by tourism and hospitality specialists who are actively involved in research that informs the future of these industries; as well as notable experts who share their expertise during regular guest lectures.
