The course focuses on destinations – the planning, development and regeneration of destinations, the role of government policy and the contribution of tourism to the built environment. The course takes an international perspective and includes a field trip in each year of study. The course is modular, comprising core and option modules, with ever greater module choice as you progress through the course, enabling you to specialise and create your own course pathways.


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 20 years of expertise in tourism education and research, and we are ranked in the Top 10 list of UK universities offering tourism degrees (2011 Guardian rankings). 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.

Located in the heart of London, the University of Westminster offers an unrivalled and stimulating environment in which to study tourism. We have close links with sister universities in Australia and the USA, allowing several students each year the opportunity to study one semester abroad. Our graduates have gone on to establish careers in a variety of sectors such as government, national tourist organisations, research, consultancy and hotel management.
