You will be given the opportunity to study overseas on European Union-funded modules such as Destination Analysis, Rural Tourism and International Conference Tourism as two week intensive programmes.

By your final year you will be able to analyse tourism systems and make recommendations to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of operations in respect of stakeholders including consumers, employees, shareholders and the government.
