First for tourism

We've been teaching tourism in Scotland for more than 25 years and have established an unrivalled centre for tourism excellence at the heart of the world's Festival City. Our unique programmes and research are developing the leaders of tomorrow while our industry-accredited courses are highly ranked.

Completing a placement as part of my degree gave me the best of both worlds: the academic knowledge and the practical experience.
