Overview

Students will work with destinations to plan for the future; they will visit heritage sites and think about how these sites present themselves to the public; and they learn through real examples of research being undertaken in Sweden, Europe and the rest of the world. We also expect all out students to go on exchange – what better way to experience tourism than by travelling and learning as part of your studies?
