Overview

The aviation industry is a progressive one and constantly evolving in technologies, processes and protocols. We are looking for adaptable, self-reliant individuals who have a logical approach and a critical mind. Bucks has a long-standing reputation for its aviation degrees and this responsive course reflects the constant changes within this exciting industry.

This programme keeps pace with the continuous changes within the air transport industry, ensuring you graduate with the skillsets this energetic sector demands.

You can choose to study Bucks’ BA (Hons) Airline and Airport Management with Foundation Year, at the Aylesbury Campus, Uxbridge Campus or High Wycombe Campus, helping you to develop your skills and confidence before progressing onto the degree course based at our High Wycombe Campus.

What will this course cover?

During the first year you’ll be introduced to the structure and operation of the aviation industry. You’ll establish a foundation in marketing and people management that will be delivered in an industry context. You’ll also study the security and safety aspects of air transportation and begin to look at related finance and economics.

The second year concentrates on developing managerial and analytical skills. Here you’ll explore operations further and look into decision making processes. You’ll also look at why airlines fail and study key modules in ancillary revenue management and begin preparation for seasonal employment.

In your final year you’ll carry out an individual project and follow aviation modules that cover globalisation, sustainability, commercial analysis and planning. You’ll graduate with strong leadership and managerial skills and a broad understanding of the airline and airport field.

Career opportunities

By the time you graduate, you’ll have gained practical work experience and an in depth knowledge of the aviation sector. This will make you highly employable in the aviation and tourism industries and qualified to pursue a career in the operations or marketing areas of airlines, airports, ground handlers and cargo operators. Some of the larger airlines and airports offer a limited number of placements on graduate management training programmes which you will be eligible to apply for too.

Alternatively, you’ll be able to further your studies at postgraduate level.
