BSc Tourism Management blends classroom activities with exciting field trips and excursions that demonstrate how the theories you learn are applied by tourism professionals. You will explore how tourism attractions are set up and managed, and see this in action in visits to a number of different attractions. As part of this course you will also take part in an international field trip funded by Salford Business School to see how Destination Management Organisations develop and maintain successful tourism destinations.
Because employers tell us the importance of customer service skills, you will be given the chance to shadow employees who deliver front line customer services. You will also have the opportunity to learn about current and future issues that are shaping the tourism industry such as the development of technology like augmented and virtual reality as well as Smart Cities.
To ensure you are fully up to speed with current affairs in the tourism industry, you will attend the Manchester Tourism Conference as a delegate to attend talks and workshops. A further opportunity for Tourism Management students comes through our partnership with TAMK University in Finland. Through the dual award option, you have the chance to apply to study part of your course at Tampere University of Applied Sciences and graduate with two degrees.
"The very first week I attended lectures and seminars I made friends for life, friends from my fellow students and from academics. I have found here an enormous amount of human warmth, inclusion and acceptance. In this supportive and friendly atmosphere, I have grown as a person and as a future professional.
My experience at University of Salford has enriched and empowered my life."Monica Slabu, BSc (Hons) Business and Tourism Management graduate (now titled BSc Tourism Management)
Teaching on this course will use a variety of methods to develop your knowledge and understanding. Key theories will be delivered during lectures and then discussed in seminars. Guest lecturers will also contribute to the delivery of the programme, giving insight from industry as to how theories are put into practise in the tourism industry. You will also be taken on field trips both local and international to practice your skills in real world settings. A further opportunity for international experience comes through participation in the Dual Award with Tampere University of Applied Sciences (limited places available).
You will have four hours of lectures and four hours of seminars per week, and you will also have four hours where you are supervised working on the Multi-Level Team Project. Your schedule will be supplemented with an additional three hours per week of drop in sessions in case you want additional support with your studies.

Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme.
