Student view

Holly Austen
Having had the opportunity to work with VisitChichester allowed me to gain a more practical understanding of how a destination management organisation is operated and has encouraged me to work for a tourist board. I am now working for Tourism South East, where I am responsible for building new relationships with tourism business and offering them marketing training and networking support.

Teaching and assessment

Our approach to supporting your learning, and how your learning is assessed, is designed to enable you to become a confident and enterprising graduate.  It is focused on seeking to support your ambitions, in parallel with ensuring that the needs of employers are met.  With this in mind, key features of our approach to learning and assessment include the following:

  • In place of the more traditional large group lecture method to teaching undergraduate students adopted by most University Business Schools, our approach involves tutors working with relatively small numbers of students at a time.  As well as providing an excellent environment for supporting you in the development of your subject expertise, it also helps you to develop a wide range of soft skills, such as teamwork, communication and time management.  These attributes are highly valued by graduate employers. 
  • Opportunities to work with organisations on current commercial/business problems and projects.  These experiences are used to provide the basis for assessments that enable you to apply your learning within authentic commercial situations.
