Students studying tourism and hospitality have the opportunity to partake in trips both within the UK and Europe, providing them with practical, industry knowledge as well as the opportunity to network within the industry.
Previously students have attended the World Travel Market in London, a leading, global event for the travel industry. The event is attended by more than 50,000 senior travel industry professionals, and government ministers giving students the opportunity to network with the travel industry and prospective employees.
They have a session dedicated for students who are studying travel, tourism and hospitality. Students are also given expert and tailored career advice from leading industry figures.
Students have also had the opportunity to visit Amsterdam, where they visited some major tourist attractions including the Ajax Stadium, Anne Frank’s House and the Heineken Experience.
Students were able to enhance and expand on their studies, experiencing first-hand how sports and stadiums are used as products in the tourism industry, and exploring the ethics of dark tourism.
