Tourism, Hospitality and Leisure field tripsAll of our tourism students have the opportunity to experience field trips as an integral part of their studies, offering a great chance to put learning into practice
Students have the chance to see tourism, hospitality and leisure ‘in action’, learning first hand from practitioners in the field and building on concepts and issues first taught in the classroom. And while the field trips can be hard work they are also fun and give you a chance to really get to know your fellow students.
Field trips are an integral and compulsory part of our courses and the costs are covered by fees.
Tourism in Newcastle
In the first year of BA (Hons) Tourism, Hospitality and Leisure, students go on a five day field trip to Newcastle.
This action packed week in the first semester introduces students to all key concepts in studying tourism, hospitality and leisure and looking at how it functions in one of the country’s most vibrant cities. The field trip has a programme of visits and talks that look at issues such as the role of attractions in tourism development, event planning, destination management and marketing.
We also visit North Tyneside looking at leisure and regeneration in the area, St James Park football ground, the Sage Conference Centre, the Angel of the North, the Centre for Life as well as having several guided tours from local Blue Badge Guides.
