"Keep an open mind and an eagerness for learning and you’re bound to create fond memories during your time here."
"I’m Nur and I’m studying for a BSc (Hons) in Tourism Management. I chose this course because I’ve always had an interest in tourism, the modules looked really relevant to current issues in the industry, plus I knew I wanted to go on a Professional Training Placement.
This School has long been known for offering the best courses in hospitality and tourism. I made my application back in Singapore, so I wasn’t able to attend any of the Open Days or Applicant Days to weigh up the options, but the ranking of the University, the reputation of its lecturers and location of the campus definitely influenced my decision.
Highlights so far? Without a doubt, the people I’ve met so far. This journey wouldn’t have been so meaningful and memorable without them. Also, the educational trip to Morocco and my placement year definitely stand out for me.
After I graduate, I’d love to have a career in the events industry, working all over the world. I want to have a global experience.
For those of you thinking about studying hospitality and tourism here – all I can say is you won’t regret it. Its academic history and credibility speaks for itself. There are so many opportunities within students’ reach, if they have the courage to pursue it. There’ll be tough moments along the way, but there’s always help and support if you need it. Keep an open mind and an eagerness for learning and you’re bound to create fond memories during your time here."
