International Tourism Management with Adventure Tourism

International Tourism Management with Adventure Tourism

International Tourism Management with Adventure Tourism

Overview

Do you love tourism and have a sense of adventure? Adventure tourism is one of the fastest growing niche sectors of the wider tourism industry. Growing numbers of tourism destinations are looking to create travel experiences that are characterised by excitement, risk and remoteness, and new geographies of tourism for new typologies of tourists which are emerging. 

This course has been specifically designed to equip you with a range of skills in response to the rapidly growing adventure tourism market. As part of this programme you will develop a range of transferable skills through practical experiences both locally and abroad, become an informed thinker by considering sustainable practices, and work with host communities to develop the business skills required to be a confident, ethically minded graduate who can excel in the tourism industry.

Your placement year will consolidate your learning and enable you to gain valuable experience in international tourism and specifically the adventure tourism industry. Based in the Leeds area with easy access to a variety of adventure tourism destinations, this course will help you to unlock your individual talents and prepare you to manage and engage in all aspects of the adventure tourism operation.

Research Excellence Framework 2014
Our school contributed to Unit 26 of the Research Excellence Framework 2014: 59% of the research in that Unit was assessed as world leading or internationally excellent.

Adventure tourism is one of one of the fastest growing markets both in the UK and abroad. This programme of study has been designed to provide you with current research informed thinking balanced against a programme of field work and practical activities to prepare you for the workplace. 

Residentials and fieldwork 

During your first year you will have the opportunity to take part in a residential experience. This will be a chance to meet new friends and take part in a number of challenges to develop your problem solving and team working skills. Activities could include rock climbing, gorge scrambling, mountaineering, walking, canoeing and kayaking.

Building on your first year, you will gain additional experience through a residential trip and fieldwork in both your second and third years. You will also have access to our student societies that are regularly engaged in a variety of adventure tourism activities. These experiences are designed to allow you to build skills and knowledge in preparing you for a career in adventure tourism, and to have fun.

Your knowledge and understanding of the unique locations, host communities and sustainable practices required in this sector will enable you to become a confident, ethically minded and critically informed adventure tourism professional with the expertise to excel in this industry.

This course will maximise your exposure to practising industry professionals through opportunities such as field trips, your placement year and extra-curricular learning opportunities such as engagement with relevant external qualifications and short courses. Your development will be further supported by a range of industry-based assessments.

Key industry partners such as the Adventure Tourism Research Association (ATRA), Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA), The Institute of Travel and Tourism (ITT) and the Tourism Management Institute (TMI) will provide further opportunities to engage with employers through a variety of events, often hosted at the University. These could include guest presentations, networking events, graduate career fairs and collaboration to develop teaching materials.

Centre for Tourism and Hospitality Management 
We were the first UK university to be recognised as a Centre of Excellence for Tourism (ITT). Awarded by the leading professional body, this recognition puts us at the forefront of education and research in this dynamic sector.

As a student, you will be encouraged to raise your profile, take advantage of networking opportunities with key players in the sector and to enhance your CV and future career prospects.

Study and Volunteer Abroad 
We offer study abroad opportunities at any one of our partner universities in Australia, Germany, Scandinavia, Spain and the USA. You may also go on an international volunteering programme and work on local economic and community development projects in The Gambia, Thailand, India, USA, Sri Lanka or Mexico. See more about how you could involved in our unique volunteering programme.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

To study this course, you will require broadband internet connection with a speed of 2mbps and working speakers. You will need Windows 7 / Mac OSX 10.8 or above and have access to Chrome v63 or higher (recommended), Edge v42+, Firefox v57+ or Safari v6+.
