Studying Tourism

What to look forward to

Your learning will be driven by our practical teaching methods, like field trips and hands-on projects, paired with our commitment to adapting to current trends and context through industry speakers and specialist modules.

A flexible and practical approach to prepare you for graduation

You’ll learn through a combination of theory-based courses and workshops. Our workshops will encourage you to work collaboratively with your classmates through case study analysis, class discussions, or creative projects like portfolios or product pitches.

Our approach is very hands-on and each year of your studies you’ll get to attend field-trips across the country (or even abroad!) and work on group projects on real-world issues with our industry partners.

You’ll get the chance to explore projects that make a real impact, just like our second-year students who travelled to Gran Canaria to work with the tourism board in the city and chat about how to make real change in tourism management.

Innovative teaching that's enhanced by technology

Our teaching and learning approach is evidence-based and designed using feedback from students and staff during the pandemic and in previous years.

For example, our students particularly liked our guest lecture series, in which professionals from the tourism and hospitality sector from around the world visited the virtual classroom to answer questions and talk about the future of the industry.

We also use technology to enhance your learning and put you in control, like polls and quizzes during lectures so you can interact live.

  • Individualised support to help you excel in your career

    One of the unique aspects of our Tourism programmes at Middlesex University is our dedicated careers support team.

    Our Employability Champions are in charge of working with you on an individual basis to plan out your career ambitions, prepare for interviews, and even connect you with important industry contacts. We even have an optional module in your third year dedicated to preparing you for your career after graduation.

    Our courses will give you the knowledge and expertise to work in a variety of industries and we’ll support you in tailoring your degree plan to your specific ambitions. Our graduates have gone on to work for companies like Marriot, Eurostar, Thomas Cook, and city tourism boards.

  • Bringing our research expertise into the classroom

    Our academic team in the Tourism Department consists of some of the world’s most innovative and forward-thinking researchers. They study a variety of subjects from ethical tourism to heritage tourism and management.

    We bring this to the classroom through our variety of optional modules that you can pick from depending on your area of interest. This includes modules in responsible tourism management, policy and planning in international tourism, and emerging markets.

    See how one of our senior lecturers, Dr Dimitrios Stylidis, brings his research on local resident’s interaction with tourism.

    From our practical approach to teaching and our personalised employability support to our variety of optional modules and fantastic academic staff, we know that studying tourism at Middlesex University will set you up for a successful career. No matter your area of interest or career goals, we are here to help you along your journey and ensure you are equipped to practice in an ever-changing world.
