Distance Learning (3 years)
Tourism is the world’s largest service sector in the world, as well as the fastest growing economic sector in many countries. It is therefore unsurprising that Tourism is one of the world’s most important sources of employment.
Our BSc in Tourism Management prepares students for a career in Tourism but also for a career in the hospitality industry more broadly. Students acquire in-depth knowledge of the economics of Tourism as well as of the latest Tourism marketing trends and they test this knowledge against real-life case studies.
This degree is therefore ideal for either anyone seeking to start a career in Tourism or for professionals who are already working in the broad field of Tourism and are seeking to progress in their existing careers. It is a course that provides students with a broad foundational experience. Such experiences serve to develop a student skill set which can fit a wide array of employment opportunities.

One of our distinguishing features is that at the end of each year of our three-year Bachelor programmes, we award separate certificates: at the end of the first year a Diploma; at the end of the second year an Advanced Diploma; and, finally, at the end of the third year, a Bachelor certificate. This offers students more flexibility and the freedom to start a degree without committing to the entire length of the course.
On completion of Year 1, successful students will be awarded the Diploma in Marketing Management.
On completion of Year 2, successful students will be awarded the Advanced Diploma in Tourism Management.
Finally, upon successful completion of Year 3, successful students will be awarded the Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management.
