This course takes place in study centres that include universities and colleges in non-UK countries, and is a way to gain a world-class undergraduate degree from a British university without leaving your country. The content of the course mirrors the Sunderland-based equivalent course: International Tourism and Hospitality Management (Top-Up).
This particular course allows you to top a Foundation Degree in travel and tourism to a full honours degree with just one more year of study.
Please contact your Study Centre for the duration and mode of this course.
You will be taught by passionate academics who produce world-leading research. A typical week for you will include lectures, seminars, workshops, group work, fieldwork and e-learning. There is an emphasis on developing independent study skills. You will also have opportunities to present ideas and information to other students and also develop concepts and analyses within groups.
As well as assessments that count towards your final degree, there are also on-going assessments to provide feedback and help consolidate your learning. Assessment methods include written coursework, projects, presentations, practical exercises, time-constrained examinations and the major project in your final year.
Some modules have prerequisites. Read more about what this means in our Help and Advice article.
We also require three passes at GCSE grade C or above, which must include Mathematics and English Language, or an equivalent qualification, for example; a minimum of Level 2 Key Skills in Communication and Application of Number. If you have studied for a new GCSE for which you will be awarded a numerical grade then you will need to achieve a grade 4 or above.
If English is not your first language we will require an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) with an overall score of 6.0 and at least 5.5 or higher in each component: reading, writing, listening and speaking. An alternative approved Secure English Language Test (SELT) can also be considered if the applicant's element scores are equivalent to those required for IELTS.
Please contact the Study Centre directly for information about tuition fees and scholarships.
