FdSc Tourism, Hospitality and Events Management Level 5
The FdSc in Tourism, Hospitality and Events Management will blend management modules with industry theoretical studies and practical operational and management components. This course provides you with many stimulating opportunities. The nature of the tourism, hospitality and events industries is reflected in the style of teaching and learning. Key lectures are heavily supported by regular trips, visits and guest lectures from industry experts.
Previous students have had the opportunity to attend an annual 3-day visit to London, where they considered the current trends and challenges in our capital city. In the past this trip has included visits to some of the most prestigious hotels in London, as well as touring Canary Wharf, the Bank of England, the Houses of Parliament and the Olympic Village. Annual overseas visits have also been organised, which have previously seen students travel to destinations such as Berlin, Cannes, Monaco, Naples, Paris, Reims, Rome and Venice.
The full-time and part-time course has one start point in September.

I progressed from Level 3 Adventure Sports at South Devon College through to the Adventure Leadership foundation degree at University Centre South Devon. I had a very large interest in the outdoors before starting college, and when seeing the course that was available, I felt like it was a great opportunity to study something I enjoy and I’m passionate about, whilst still learning. The high practical content of the course was also a big deciding factor. There were also many trips, expeditions and adventurous activities to take part in as part of the course. I have made many friends and the employment opportunities that I have been able to access has allowed me to put all of my training into practice.Olivia Harrison
