Best Universities In The UK To Study Travel and Tourism


Choosing which university you study at and indeed which course is best for you is a very important decision. Not only will it affect the next three years (or longer) of your life but it is likely to guide the course of your career and what opportunities will be available to you. 

League tables can be really confusing as there are so many different lists out there! One of the most reputable sources is the Guardian, where courses have been ranked according to subject area. Remember, there is more to consider than simply where a university is ranked (like research output, funding opportunities, teaching and excellence (TEF) score etc), but for those of you interesting in studying travel and tourism this list is a good place to start. 

To get a feel for the type of content that you might cover in these courses, feel free to take a look at some of my posts categorised tourism perspectives
