Entry onto top-up courses is through the successful completion of the HND or Foundation Degree (FD) in International Tourism. If you hold an HND or FD in another subject area, entry onto the course is determined by the modules and number of relevant academic credits you have achieved.
This course is run in partnership with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David.
