Hospitality and Tourism
'Hospitality and Tourism’ is the perfect course for me, as I enjoy the variety and the two subjects complement each other brilliantly.
A great advantage of this course is its flexibility, as I get a range of options to choose.
Options to choose from in the optional subject, and I can focus on either Hospitality or Tourism. I enjoy touring different places and meeting people from different parts of the world. I have found the subject easy and enjoyable for me. Assignments are interesting, CTH and teachers from HECS have made it easy for us, which means that working with their guidance we enjoy and learn a lot; so have the largely chosen tourism industries. As a Hospitality and Tourism PGD student, I have access to the e-library, one of the most modern facilities in CTH. It has extremely useful and accessible Books and Literature along with the HECS library – as well as a great refreshment area!
The nature and quality of the College is very different from that of its contemporary ones in the UK, with a far greater focus on independent study alongside tutorials, classes, group works, assignments, seminars and lectures. I find it to be a stimulating and fulfilling way to learn.
The collegiate system is an excellent way to make friends and settle into Aberdeen life. All of my friends have got part-time jobs and accommodation and we settled in the city within one month. Also HECS has good links with the newly built Aberdeen Sports Village where we can use all the facilities.
“I love immersing myself in a new and different culture, whether that’s a foreign country or a new study institution. I really enjoy learning about new ideas and interactions, both societal and cultural. As a graduate in geography.
I have a detailed understanding of world-geography, which I can use in the Hospitality and Tourism Industry to help enterprises and others to fulfil the customers’ needs. This also involves analysing and interacting with large quantities of complex data with its practical applications in a way that would otherwise be impossible.
In the last decade the World Wide Web has taken over lots of front-desk activities in the hospitality and tourism industry. There was an essential need to match this industry with new and emerging technology — well done by the recent practitioners, really. It’s the perfect time for a field like e-marketing to make an impact and enable us to make sense of all these.
