Overview

Within the travel and tourism industry, there is an increasing focus on the need to adopt responsible business practices that improve the quality of life for communities and conserve the environment and local cultures. This course helps meet the resulting demand for managers with the ability to implement responsible tourism strategies within marketing, operations and product development.

You will explore domestic and international tourism and you will understand that the principles of responsible tourism are as applicable to the Yorkshire Dales as they are to The Gambia. In addition to developing your subject knowledge, you will learn how to plan, implement and evaluate responsible tourism policies and practices.

This is the only responsible tourism course in the world certified by the UNWTO.TedQual programme established by the United Nations World Tourism Organization. It is taught by staff with first-hand experience in tourism management, research and consultancy, who will share their global expertise with you.

This award is delivered through face-to-face or distance learning supported by tutorials and our university’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). This provides greater flexibility to accommodate different learning needs, such as enabling you to continue working whilst studying, and widening participation to the course.

The VLE and online delivery will provide a repository of learning materials, including module handbooks, lecture slides, multimedia elements, digitised readings and past sample assignments.

If you are a student wishing to study distance learning, you may be able to complete the course in two years following discussion with and agreement of the Course Director.

Research Excellence Framework 2014
Research Excellence Framework 2014: 59% of our research submitted was assessed as world leading or internationally excellent.

To support your studies, you will be assigned a personal industry mentor. Our mentors are experienced tourism professionals and have all graduated from this masters course, so they understand your journey. Your mentor could assist you in a number of possible ways, including discussing career pursuits, giving advice on work placements, helping to improve your CV and providing tips on assignments, course material and work / life balance. We have over 20 mentors from areas as diverse as the Gambia Travel Foundation Programme, TUI UK & Ireland and VisitEngland, so we will attempt to match you with an appropriate mentor.

Our teaching is grounded in industry consultancy and research. The quality of our research is evident in the outstanding results achieved in the Research Assessment Exercise completed in 2014 in which Leeds Beckett came second in the country for sport and exercise science, leisure and tourism.

Staff teaching this course have played a leading role in the responsible tourism and hospitality movement through research and development work with the industry and government which enables our students to also play an important role in this sector. Lucy McCombes is a certified Travelife auditor and Dr Simon Woodward is chair of the ICOMOS-UK Cultural Tourism Committee and a Trustee of the Landscape Research Centre.

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.

MSc Responsible Tourism Management

“I previously worked for a communications agency, but I've always enjoyed travelling and decided to switch to a career in responsible tourism. There's not many courses in this area, but in my opinion Leeds Beckett has the best - it gave me the opportunity to work on real tourism projects, including one in The Gambia. I now work at a national park, where my skills in sustainability and responsible tourism acquired from my masters are essential for this role.

Teaching and learning

If you are starting this course in January 2019, you will study the following modules: Responsible Tourism Theory & Practice; Destination Management: Roles & Responsibilities (Destinations); Marketing Responsible Tourism; Natural Resource & Environmental Management; Communities, Culture & Heritage; Research Methods; Tourism for Local Economic Development & Poverty Reduction; Research Project. If you choose to join us as a full-time learner in September 2019, all modules are core (Responsible Tourism Theory & Practice is not offered for full-time students). If you join us as a distance learner in September 2019, you will start the course with an optional module of either Responsible Tourism Theory & Practice or Ethical Tourism Business Management, you will then study the first six core modules plus Destination Management: Roles & Responsibilities (Destinations). You should contact your Course Director for advice on which option is most suitable for you.

Distance Learning - overall workload

Her experience is broad and she has worked for a range of clients including key strategic organisations such as UNWTO, UNEP and VisitEngland. Davina studied her PhD in New Zealand and her current interests include responsible tourist behaviour and destination management.
The most exciting part of my job is working with students to help them improve what they do. Most of our students are already very knowledgeable and experienced – we can refine that experience and give them the tools they need to critically analyse responsible tourism.

Additional costs
In many cases, costs associated with your course will be included in your course fee. However, in some cases there are ‘essential’ additional costs (those that you will be required to meet in addition to your course fee), and/or ‘optional’ additional costs (costs that are not required, but that you might choose to pay). We have included those essential or optional additional costs that relate to your course, below

Course-specific optional expenses

  • Event industry associations student membership
    (A range of event industry associations offer student membership fees. Costs for each association will vary)
  • Replacement DBS Certificate
    (Should you need a DBS certificate for your placement and you lose your original, you will be charged £44 for a replacement)
  • Field trips / site visits
    (You will be invited to engage in one field trip per module. Costs would be dependent on location and may be subsidised. You would be expected to pay local transport costs for local trips. Distance learning students would be invited to attend a specific course trip and costs may or may not be subsidised depending on location.)
  • Event attendance
    (Opportunities are provided to attend events beyond the curriculum. Cost will depend on location and ticket price)

Other study-related expenses to consider: books (the library stocks books from your module reading list but you may wish to purchase copies for yourself); placement costs (these may include travel expenses and living costs); student visas (international students only); printing, photocopying and stationery; field trips; study abroad opportunities (travel costs and accommodation, visas and immunisations); PC/laptop (provided on campus in social learning spaces and in the library. However, you may prefer to have your own); mobile phone/tablet (to access University online services); academic conferences (travel costs); professional-body membership (where applicable); and graduation (gown hire and guest tickets).

This list is not exhaustive and costs will vary depending on the choices you make during your course. Any rental or living costs are also in addition to your course fees.

Studying part-time gives you the flexibility to learn at your own pace. Because of this, our tuition fees are calculated using credit points. Each module you study has a credit point value. Most modules have a credit point value of 20. The tuition fee for students entering in in 201920 on this course is £777.80 for each 20 credit point module. For modules with a different credit point value their cost can be calculated by multiplying the credit value of the module by the cost per credit point of £38.89. The amount you will pay may increase each year in line with inflation.
