"The lecturers all have extensive industry experience and they are always happy to help. The fact they are from industry helps them deliver lectures with first-hand experience of what it’s like to work in travel and tourism. The facilities are fantastic and the ‘mock cabin’ is great for getting a feel of what it would be like to work as cabin crew."
