Tourism, Hospitality and Events Management

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.

Potential Job Roles

"When I attended an Open Evening at the University Centre South Devon I was initially unsure which direction I wanted to take.  When I spoke to a tutor about my goals, strengths and weaknesses, they guided me to a degree in business and management and I never looked back."Charlotte McGowan
