Tourism continues to be a major component of the global economy and has now become an established academic discipline, with roots in geography, economics, sociology, planning and business.
The University of Westminster has over 20 years of expertise in tourism education and research, and we are consistently ranked as one of the top universities for teaching quality and research output in the discipline. Our long history dating back to the 1830s includes a signiﬁcant association with the early years of tour operating in Europe, and with the Olympic Games held in London in 1908 and 1948.
The Tourism, Planning and Management (Honours) degree at the University of Westminster takes an international perspective and includes a field trip in each year of study. The course is modular, comprising core and option modules, allowing students to specialise and create their own course pathways.
All of the students, no matter which tourism course they take, come away with a good grounding in tourism from a theoretical and practical perspective. We take a policy-orientated approach, drawing on issues of strategy and planning, which means they are well-suited to work in planning and strategic roles in their future careers.
The Tourism Planning and Management (Honours) takes students deeper into issues of development and planning policy, and many of them go on to local and regional government roles and the tourist authorities.
