Overview

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 spent many years directly employed in the sector in various senior 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 alongside significant directed and independent learning outside of the scheduled sessions. Lectures and seminars provide an opportunity to share knowledge and experience providing a forum for discussion, debate and exploration of issues.

At Level 6 you are expected to engage in a minimum of 200 hours of academic activity per module (400 hours for dissertation module). This includes attendance at lectures and seminars as well as engagement with directed and independent learning activities and assessment. 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 be available to help you progress. Your independent study is supported by the excellent Learning Hub at the Aviation Academy in addition to the College’s Specialist Support Centre.
