Additional information

Following completion of this course, you can continue to finish an undergraduate degree in the field of tourism, travel, the leisure industry or events management.

Your HND is equivalent to the first two years of an undergraduate degree so you should be eligible for direct entry to the final year of a three-year undergraduate degree in a related field. Different universities will have different entry requirements in terms of the grade they require in your HND, so it is worth checking this as soon as you decide which university you might like to attend.

Alternatively, if you wish to go straight into work with your HND, you’ll find that you can apply for more senior or more specialist roles than before.
