Leisure and Tourism
This course is a practical, one year course that is ideal for students who have an interest in the leisure, travel and tourism industries. Through visits to actual facilities and tourism destinations, you will build up an understanding of the importance of leisure and tourism industries to so- ciety and national/local economies, the impacts of activities on the local area as well as investigating why destinations appeal to different types of tourists. If you would like to study a subject that will broaden your experiences and gives you the opportunity to apply theory to practical work outside the classroom, this could be the course for you.
