    Course Summary

    A BSc degree in Tourism Management from the University of Sunderland is a great way to get your foot in the door of one of the UK’s fastest growing industries. This program is ranked only 4th in the entire UK by the Guardian University League Tables for 2018, and will ensure that you graduate with a wide range of practical experience and specialised skills in the industry. Beyond that, it will give you a deep understanding of the art of managing and leading people within the tourism industry, something you’ll need to assume a responsible role.

    This course offers something else – and integrated Foundation Year. A foundation year makes the entire program more approachable, even for students who don’t have strong educational scores or who have studied for an unrelated specialty or industry. The first year of the program will ensure that you have a firm grasp of mathematics and English, as well as giving you a basic grasp of the service industry generally.

By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
