Diploma in Tourism Management - Level 4

Cth Level 4 Diploma In Tourism Management

This is a substantive programme, typically delivered over a nine month period in the case of full-time students. CTH Level 4 courses combine practical career-based elements with a number of essential underpinning management disciplines that will be invaluable as the individual’s career progresses. The course is therefore an ideal preparation for immediate employment in the sector.


Alternatively students may use it as a pathway to advanced study, typically progressing on to the CTH Level 5 Advanced Diploma. Since the Level 4 Diploma is designed to be broadly equivalent to that of the first year of a bachelor’s degree, students may use the qualification to apply for credit entry to a number of bachelor degree programmes at selected universities worldwide.


The programme comprises 7 mandatory units totalling 145 credits. Minimum guided learning hours are 835 and assessment is by a combination of closed book written 2.5 hour examination or assignment/work assessment.


Students can achieve the guided learning hours in combination of face to face classroom interactions, attending seminars, visits to hotels, self-study and group study as well as research work.
