Travel & Tourism

What will I study?

You will study two of the most exciting, dynamic and fastest growing industries in the world. You will complete a detailed study of the many components of the travel and tourism industries. You will explore pressures on the industries such as terrorism, natural disasters, climate change and mass tourism. You will investigate sustainable solutions to the problems. You will be expected to prepare for exams but also to complete independent research into a range of topics. This research is unique to the individual student, designed by them and supported by the teacher. So, independent learning is a significant part of the course. Visits into the industry are a key part of the course – past residential visits have included London, Edinburgh & Jersey.
