About Tourism Studies at University of Exeter Business School, University of Exeter

This programme is an ideal route to further research in tourism studies, such as an M.Phil or Ph.D. For those interested in a mainly taught masters degree with more emphasis on management skills and techniques and less emphasis on research methodology, see our

MSc Tourism, Development and Policy.

The MRes Tourism Studies is ideal for anyone wishing to undertake research into tourism and its related disciplines. In addition to a substantial research-based dissertation, you will learn core research skills for the social sciences, their theoretical underpinnings, and data collection and analysis techniques. You will also learn the fundamental theoretical concepts of management and inter-discipliniary studies of tourism.

You will gain an undertanding of the position of tourism in the contemporary social sciences, learn how this links to management and business theory, and how management theory also draws on research in tourism studies. In doing so, you will acquire a range of skills in the capture, analysis and presentation of tourism data. These skills are especially relevant to careers in academic, public and private research in tourism.

In addition to the support and facilities provided by the University and School of Business and Economics, MRes Tourism Studies students further benefit from:

  • Guest speakers forum: a number of practitioners and researchers are invited to address the students.

  • Centre for Tourism Studies Research Seminar Programme: visiting speakers and departmental researchers from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds present the findings of their current research on topics in tourism.

  • Fieldwork assistance - competitive access to small bursaries awarded by the Communications and Partnerships Division, where a student's independent research work for the dissertation has demonstrable application to external partners.
