The Air Transport Management BSc (Hons) will enable you to build on prior knowledge of the aviation sector and develop an in-depth awareness of the factors facing the industry, providing you with the opportunity to refine your skills and attributes to a higher level to enhance your career prospects.
The College has well-established links with Leeds Bradford Airport and works directly with aviation companies including Jet2.com and Swissport, to ensure you have the most current knowledge and opportunities of best practice in the aviation industry.
All members of the course teaching team have significant experience in a variety of aviation-related disciplines, including tutors who have been directly employed in the sector in management roles. This close involvement with aviation combines with a broad knowledge of the fundamental principles of business to bring breadth and depth to the teaching. The resulting balance in course content should greatly assist graduates as they progress directly to relevant careers in the aviation industry.
Teaching and learning will take place through a combination of lectures and seminars providing an opportunity to share knowledge and experience and providing a forum for discussion, debate and exploration of issues. In addition to timetabled sessions, 10-12 hours of personal study will be required each week. You will be expected to become resourceful and entrepreneurial and to take responsibility for your own learning. Independent research, reporting on own reading, one to one guidance and small group discussion will help you progress. Your independent study is supported by the Learning Hubs at the Aviation Academy and Aireville Campus, in addition to the College’s Specialist Support Centre.
You will receive feedback on your formal assessments within four working weeks of the submission date. You must receive a pass mark of 40 or above in all modules to achieve the BSc (Hons) Degree.
