Work Placement Year
All full-time students on this course have the opportunity to undertake a year-long work placement after their second year. Students are expected to source their own placement, and tutors can provide support during the process if required. Those who choose this route do not pay tuition fees for that year but will be required to cover their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs.

Complete University Guide 2022

Students have the chance to spend around four months learning at an overseas university as part of our exchange programme during their second year. Current destinations include Mexico, China, Malaysia, the USA, France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Malta, Sweden, and Finland. The study abroad scheme requires students to pay for their own travel, accommodation, and living expenses.
Optional Study Visits
Throughout the course, students can take part in optional study visits. The cost of these vary, but students can expect to pay between £20 and £40 for each visit, which may be used for food, drinks, and admission fees to events and venues. An optional visit to Sri Lanka is currently available for students who choose to take the optional third-year module Disaster Management. This costs approximately £900, which can be paid in instalments, plus food costs. Attendance on this trip is not assessed.
"During my degree, I spent six months in China and participated in field trips to Sri Lanka and India, giving me in-depth knowledge about business practices, disaster management, and cultural differences, which will benefit me in my future career."Rebecca Cardell, BA (Hons) International Tourism Management graduate
