Flying high following her time at college, former Level 3 Travel & Tourism student Elisha Gilbert is now studying BA Hons Tourism and Events Management with Northumbria University in Newcastle.
Elisha has always been keen on gaining real-world experience alongside studying, making the college a natural choice, with its strong connections with business and industry giving her opportunities to develop both her knowledge of the travel and tourism sectors and her employability skills.
When deciding on the right degree for her, it was important that she would be able to continue to build her experience as well as learning. Only just coming up to finishing her first year, Elisha has already enjoyed multiple networking and industry placement opportunities and is confident that her journey to working within corporate events is well on the way.
Thinking about how her time at college has prepared her for university, Elisha said: “This course is a ‘must do’ for people who want to go into the travel and tourism industry. My tutors, Mark and Jenny, really encouraged me to aim high, helping me to develop my presentation skills and giving me the fundamental knowledge I needed to have a good start in my degree!”
