Take off on an exciting international career by studying our Aviation and Airport Management course. Gain in-depth knowledge of how the aviation industry functions, with visits to national and international airports as well as a year-long placement to boost your experience.
Aviation is a huge international industry. Airlines transported more than 4.5 billion passengers worldwide in 2019, while global cities, ‘mega-regions’ and emerging destinations are experiencing phenomenal growth in aviation development. New digital technologies are also being harnessed to create ‘smarter’ operations, conscious of the global environmental challenges society faces.
Developed with extensive input from industry experts, our Aviation and Airport Management degree will help your career ‘take off’ in this dynamic sector. Using our state-of-the-art facilities including our new Aviation and Tourism Suite, you will gain a deep understanding of the aviation environment and practices through simulated and real-life industry projects, visiting airports, networking with experts and learning first-hand how the industry functions.
Research shows 70% of employers are reluctant to recruit graduates without relevant work experience. One of the benefits of our aviation course is the option of a four-year degree with a 48-week paid work placement, giving you a distinctive advantage in a competitive job market.
A number of our students have also worked part-time at Birmingham Airport, and with the airport’s £500 million expansion plan to become the ‘Midlands Gateway to the World’, there are fantastic opportunities on your doorstep both during and after your studies.
