Career opportunities

Leisure is a wide sector of the economy with extensive employment prospects. There is a broad range of career opportunities within the leisure industries, including: the arts; events management; entertainments; sports and recreation; theatres; tourism attractions; and tour operators. The average salary six months after graduating from the course is £21,000 per year, which is higher than the average for similar courses in the UK ( Unistats ).

Whether you want to go into a leisure-based management or leadership position, or run your own leisure-related business, this degree will equip you with the skills and knowledge necessary. However, the broad base of the course, particularly the focus on management and leadership skills, also lay the foundation for employment in other sectors.
