What is Bachelor of Arts (Ord) Leisure Management?

The leisure industry is dynamic and fast-moving and the nature of career opportunities in the industry is changing and growing rapidly. This programme focuses on the broad leisure industry and includes supervised industrial placements, practical modules and integrated continuous assessment. Practical modules include assessment in First Aid, Lifesaving and Fitness Instruction, while there is also a strong emphasis on business subjects including financial management, marketing, property management, human resource management and business law. Successful graduates will be prepared for entry into the industry at management level in areas such as leisure centres, theme parks, aquatic centres, golf clubs, tennis clubs, hotel leisure centres and other recreation-related developments. Within the practical modules students are assessed for recognised qualifications in First-Aid, Lifesaving and Fitness Instruction. Applicants should note that there is a strong emphasis on business subjects and on academic performance generally. Some examinations in second year take place in March after which each student must complete a four-month supervised placement in industry. This placement is remunerated and may be undertaken in Ireland or abroad.


Students may be required to attend classes at locations across the Institute.
