“I’ve enjoyed studying Travel and Tourism because it’s a very interesting subject which is relevant to my chosen career and because all the teachers are friendly and help you as much as they can. When I leave OSFC I’m planning to go on to Leeds Metropolitan University to study Events Management.”

“I’ve found the Travel and Tourism course to be interesting and fun. There is a comfortable atmosphere and the tutors have all been very encouraging and helpful. I would definitely recommend it to other students who are considering a career in the industry. When I leave I’m hoping to find a job as cabin crew, or perhaps move into acting.”
