I haven't done this, I'm going for History at Cambridge but I would have thought:

Travel & Tourism, Business Studies, English Literature or Language and a language or ICT might be good!

I don't know for sure, but I imagine ICT/computing, business studies, economics, travel and tourism, health and social care, maths, languages (Les Roches is Swiss I think, so French could be useful). Alternatively there are BTECs in travel and tourism which might provide a more specialist education if he's sure he wants I go into that field.

Hotel Management is a very specific degree, and one which is not required for actual Hotel Management. An economics/business/management degree would be adequate and open up more doors in the future should he change his mind.

Maths (FM if he's confident) Economics History/English and a fourth he plans to drop after AS.

Tell him to research current Hotel Managers and their backgrounds. A degree is not essential, work experience in a hotel environment may be more valuable.

I'd say Business and English out of them will be good but he should take Travel & Tourism. That will be sort of about the stuff he is interested in. Then Psychology or Law... or sociology really but they're probably the better ones.

So that the person knows I'm giving advice without actually considering anything in the same pathway.

Why do you feel the need to ask "lol".

I just thought it was odd that you included Cambridge as well, as it bears no relevance to the question at hand. "I'm not an expert" would have sufficed.

Well let me apologise for not thinking of that specific phrase at the time. I'm really sorry for that :rolleyes:.

It bares relevance, it's an academic university that doesn't do anything to do with what he was talking about. Stop being argumentative, I can state what I want to state and not have to justify myself to you nor anyone.

Stop.

That's what i thought a language might help such as French, all he wants to know is that you don't need accounting in the degrees :P
