The facilities are fantastic especially the mock cabin which allows students to experience the real-life situations in the airline industry.

After completing my work experience at British Airways, it gave me a lot of opportunities such as attending workshops and other events. I am now the Inspire Student Ambassador for British Airways, which means I attend events outside of my study time representing the college. All the staff in the travel department have always supported me which motivates me to do something challenging in my career.
