BA Management, Leadership and Leisure: Alumni profiles


Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2020 will be £9,250 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £19,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.

Additional expenses

Students who choose either the Tourism Destinations or Live Events course units in their second year will be able to attend an optional field trip to a local or international destination.

Students will need to contribute toward the costs of the field trip. However, every year we consult with students on the price and destination to ensure the optional trip is inclusive to each cohort.

Policy on additional costs

All students should normally be able to complete their programme of study without incurring additional study costs over and above the tuition fee for that programme. Any unavoidable additional compulsory costs totalling more than 1% of the annual home undergraduate fee per annum, regardless of whether the programme in question is undergraduate or postgraduate taught, will be made clear to you at the point of application. Further information can be found in the University's Policy on additional costs incurred by students on undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes (PDF document, 91KB).
