Course Introduction

Our Centre for Tourism Research has a distinct focus on tourism in cities and metropolitan areas. Interests include: airport management, business tourism, city image, conference and event tourism, national capital tourism, social tourism, sports tourism, tourism and city development, and tourism policy. We take a broad view of research and believe that the knowledge exchange that comes from working with and advising the tourism industry and government and from writing widely read books is important. We have a thriving community of PhD students and offer supervision to suitably qualified applicants whose topics engage with our research interests.
