International Tourism and Event Management

The tourism programmes at ATU Galway are designed to equip students with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to pursue a successful career in management and business in both the domestic and international tourism industry. The integrated work placements in Year 1 and Year 2 enable students to develop skills and experience at both operational and supervisory management levels, thus experiencing first-hand the challenges, demands and rewards of working in this exciting and ever-changing industry. The inclusion of the Fáilte Ireland Certified Regional and National Guiding Certificates greatly enhance the employability of graduates of the programmes. In addition, students will learn to use the Galileo international travel booking system, used by tour operators all over the world.
