The BSc (Hons) Business & Tourism Management is a 4-year course with Foundation Year taught across our London, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester campuses.

Tourism continues to be an important part of the service sector that generates significant income for regions and countries across the globe. This course will provide you with the essential skills and knowledge you need to create a successful career in business and tourism management.

Course Overview

With the recent economic challenges in the travel and hospitality sectors, it's even more important than ever to create a degree designed to support the sustainability and growth of an industry that supports millions of jobs worldwide.

Our business and tourism management programme will provide you with the knowledge you need to open up opportunities for a future in the tourism industry. Whether that's employment with local, national or international companies, or you're a budding entrepreneur looking to create a new niche, never has the saying "the world is your oyster" been more appropriate.

Committing to study at the degree level will give you transferrable skills that can be applied in any career context. Leadership, business operations, strategy and entrepreneurship are all essential to keep our industries pushing forward.

For those with a specific passion for tourism, this programme will equip you with the expertise, skills and knowledge you need to get ahead. You'll gain knowledge and understanding of the different characteristics of tourism.

  • How do you assess demand?
  • What is the environmental impact of travel?
  • How do we remain ethical and sympathetic to our global communities?

Our programme will give you the foundational and specialist knowledge to make a difference in a globally significant industry.


This GBS course will provide you with opportunities to test your knowledge and understanding through informal formative assessments. Formative assessments will be completed before your formal summative assessment, which will determine your final marks.

Each module normally contains at least one piece of formative assessment from which you will receive feedback from your course team. Formative assessments are purely for developmental purposes and do not count towards your final module mark. They are designed to help you gain more knowledge and confidence in the module material and approaches to formal assessment. Students who do not engage with informal assessments often struggle with Foundation Year progression, as well as with the academic levels above.

The formal summative assessment usually occurs towards the end of each module. Assessment methods may include written examinations and a range of coursework, including reports, portfolios, essays, and presentations. The marks awarded for summative assessments count towards your final module mark. Assessment methods at GBS are reviewed annually and may be updated in consultation with students, for example in response to student or External Examiner feedback. An External Examiner is an independent academic expert from another higher education provider, and they are appointed by Canterbury Christ Church University to provide external assurance regarding the academic standards of your course.
