Plymouth University

plymouth-logoThe School of Tourism and Hospitality at Plymouth University offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate tourism programmes that have been developed in consultation with industry.  All of the programmes are developed to enhance student understanding and critical awareness of the tourism industry, alongside ethical issues that underpin best practice.  From discussing the products, structure and interactions in the international tourism industry, to developing language skills, and placing emphasis on the business environment, we believe our BSc (hons) Tourism Management, International Tourism Management and Business and Tourism programs, respectively, are distinguished and allow for expert knowledge to be established.

 Key themes run throughout all of our programmes, such as individual and business ethics, social responsibility and corporate social responsibility.  These principles echo our school mission, to educate our student and empower them to act in an ethical and professional manner when doing business.   All of the programs are led by passionate and experienced staff who are committed to delivering high quality education.  Each member of the team draws on their wealth of knowledge, research, and links with industry.  Each degree has also been accredited by the Tourism Management Institute, a professional organisation for people working in tourism destination management.  This means our students are eligible to enter undergraduate and postgraduate awards and the school is well positioned to provide a broader professional development partnership with industry and destination management practitioners for our students.  Our school and our programmes are also partnered with ABTA and ITT, which illustrates the commitment we make to our students via industry engagement.
