BA (Hons) Tourism Leisure & Hospitality
The Faculty of Education, Community and Leisure excels in a wide range of areas, including teacher training, food and consumer studies, dance, adventure tourism and sports development. The majority of the teaching takes place at the IM Marsh Campus, a modern ‘university village’ with excellent teaching facilities, good quality accommodation in their own halls of residence, a fully equipped learning resource centre and a student social centre. Sporting facilities, including an indoor swimming pool, sports hall, dance studio and an all-weather sports surface are open to all students studying at the campus.
Introduction to the programme
We would like to welcome you to the Centre for Tourism, Consumer and Food Studies at Liverpool John Moores University. The programme, established in 2005, enables suitably qualified students from Malaysia and Singapore to study for a 120 credit top-up degree. Students graduate with an LJMU honours degree – BA (Hons) Tourism, Leisure and Hospitality.
We have a team of experienced staff to support you in your studies at LJMU. In addition to experienced and well-qualified academic staff, we have administrative and technical staff to offer support. Dr Martin Selby is the Programme Leader, responsible for all aspects of the programme, and ensuring that you have a rewarding experience whilst studying at LJMU. You will be provided with a personal tutor who will guide and support you throughout the course. They will be the first point of contact should you have any questions or problems throughout the summer programme. Module Leaders and tutors are responsible for the individual modules of the programme, listed above. LJMU has a large infrastructure of support for Summer Semester students, and the Summer Semester Website has a wealth of generic information.
In addition to gaining an honours degree, if you make the most of all the opportunities provided by the programme, we feel sure that you will benefit both personally and professionally. Whilst the attainment of a BA Honours degree will greatly enhance your career opportunities, the experience of living for fourteen weeks in a different country (and continent!) will greatly contribute to your personal development. The graduation ceremony held in Malaysia in April is a great occasion for the course staff, as well as for students and their families. We hope to see you collecting your degree certificate! In 2011 the Best Overall Performance was awarded to Jing Sin Hoi and the Best Overall Improvement was awarded to Siew Lon Wong.
