This course allows you to benefit from Sunderland’s excellence in the teaching of tourism without leaving your home region or country.
The content of the course mirrors the Sunderland-based equivalent course: Accounting and Finance (ACCA Exemption).
The team behind the course have an excellent track record. According to the 2010 Student Experience Survey, the satisfaction rate of students at the Faculty of Business and Law is 92%. What’s more, Sunderland is the no.1 business school in the North East of England, according to The Guardian University Guide 2012.
Courses delivered at study centres share the same ethos, material and approach as those delivered at Sunderland itself. So this course is an outstanding way to gain the benefits of an education from our University without having to move to Sunderland.
Your studies will include a set of employability modules, spread across the course. These help you strengthen the six key attributes of being capable, enquiring, creative, enterprising, ethical and global in outlook. The modules also help you identify your strengths and aspirations, and plan for personal development.
We encourage our students to undertake a year-long placement between the second and final years, although it is not compulsory. It’s a great opportunity to get paid to put your learning into practice and to extend your experience.
