Field trips

We believe that field trips can make a huge contribution to student learning and course enjoyment and we take full advantage of our superb location to make visits to London hotels, event venues, visitor attractions and cultural sites.

Tourism field trip

At undergraduate level students will be taken on one residential field trip each year:

  • In the first year we travel to a UK historic city to study issues such as visitor management, seasonality planning and festivals
  • In the second year you will either travel to an event destination, or to a UK seaside resort to study issues such as beach management, conference and business tourism and the night-time economy
  • In the third year we travel to a Mediterranean island to study issues such as market diversification and tourism impacts

At postgraduate level there is a residential field trip in the first semester to a UK destination, with some assessment work attached to the visit. There are also several London based visits throughout the course.
