Westminster’s Tourism and Planning BA Honours and Tourism Management MA recognised by the Tourism Management Institute.

Westminster’s Tourism and Planning BA Honours and Tourism Management MA courses have been recognised by the Tourism Management Institute (TMI).

The Tourism Management Institute (TMI) is the UK professional body for destination management practitioners, with members drawn from all levels of the private and public sectors: national, regional, and local.  As the destination management partner of the Tourism Society, TMI seeks to support professional development within the sector, for potential entrants as well as existing practitioners.


Recognition of our courses by TMI means that students can be confident the courses will provide them with knowledge, understanding, skills and experience which will fully prepare them for a career in tourism destination management.

The TMI assessors commented: “We recommend that TMI formally approve this recognition application from the University of Westminster on the basis that both programmes enable students to develop an appropriately contextualised and critical understanding of the principles, practices and complexities of contemporary tourism and destination management. We would have no hesitation in recommending either of these courses to someone interested in destination tourism at either undergraduate or Masters level and wanting to be academically challenged.”
