Tourism, hospitality and events

Learn about the tourism industry or how to manage a live event with our degrees in tourism, hospitality or events. Take the next step towards a successful career in one of the world’s fastest growing sectors.

Tourism programmes

Tourism is the world's number one industry. And it's growing. By 2020 it will provide over 250 million jobs. Make one of them yours.

Our courses

All our degree courses in tourism, hospitality and events management have a sandwich year option, offering you the opportunity to gain industry experience. If you don’t meet the entry requirements for a three-year course, you can apply for an extended degree which includes a foundation year.

  • Within the Business School of the University of Greenwich, on a daily basis we are given opportunities via e-mails from our tutors and our lecturers to enable us to access the industry.

Our active societies offer the space for growth and the opportunity to make lasting friendships. As a student at Greenwich, you can take part in activities through your department and via the wider Students’ Union.

Research and partnerships

Our Tourism Research Centre is based around a network of academics, researchers and research students who all have a particular interest in tourism studies. We’re always keen to enhance our tourism research through collaboration.

Traditional markets need "personality makeover"

Researchers from the University of Greenwich surveyed market traders and visitors and found that while markets are valued for the quality of their service, they are not utilising the visitor economy.
