Perth College UHI, Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)


Recent worldwide developments have impacted our lives in every way. The tourism industry has never faced a greater global challenge or been in more need of skilled, focused expertise to guide it through these unprecedented times.

Developing the skills and resilience needed in such an environment as we find ourselves today is central to the MSc Tourism programme. You will concentrate on adapting to changing contexts, as framed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are being mainstreamed and adopted as an ‘international currency’ by different countries and nations, including Scotland.

Another key programme focus will be in developing and utilising meta-skills such as complex problem solving, critical thinking, communication, creativity and leadership. You will gain the benefit of observing and experiencing incremental progress and engaging with new tools and methods.

The programme offers two pathways: MSc Tourism and MSc Tourism (Enterprise).

You can exit early with a PgCert or PgDip.
