Level 4 Undergraduate Programme in Tourism Management

Course Code CTH-DITM

Programme Overview

This course combines practical career-based elements with the essential management disciplines that underpin this dynamic industry. It aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the Global Tourism and Hospitality Industry and operational aspects such as travel and tourism operations and supervision, as well as travel geography and destination analysis. As people are always at the centre of any hospitality business, there’s also a strong focus on customer service.

Full time students spent 50% of the course duration in industry to gain relevant work experience suitable for immediate employment upon completion of the course with the necessary theoretical underpinnings to progress into supervisory or first line management positions. This programme prepares you for careers such as international travel consultant, travel information officer, tour operator, tour guide, travel agent or travel reservations agent.

Since the Level 4 Programme is designed to be broadly equivalent to that of the first year of a bachelor’s degree, students may use the qualification to apply for credit entry to a number of bachelor degree programmes at selected international universities abroad for those students who aspire to pursue degree studies oversees. Alternatively, you may elect to upgrade your course to the Level 5 Advanced Programme and study further.
