Dont think theres a worse time anyone could be in tourism, until cv 19 is defeated.

Yes, however the industry is going to recover over time so those going to university now will enter into the industry to help rebuild it

Going to university to do a tourism degree is probably the worst thing anyone could do at the moment. Far better to concentrate on an apprenticeship or a profession

It really isn’t. I appreciate your opinion but tourism needs the graduates to help recover.

You do not need a degree to do tourism. It really is one of the worst things you can do - and I am not the only one to think this - look at the thread.

That’s your personal opinion. Thank you for your input but careers in tourism can lead to a number of different professions. I agree, it is not an industry that is easy to get into right now as it’s failing, but the degree is not pointless. Thanks for your input

Since the thread is not for you, I am curious to know why you are so bothered.

You are young and keen to get experience ( well your "friend" is) I am old and have lived and I know what is going to be important in the next few years. A degree in tourism is going to be about as useful as a chocolate teapot.

Better to get management skills, basic hotel work ( I worked as a chambermaid in France - taught me loads) . Get language skills. Kitchen skills. Far more useful than essay writing and Harvard referencing

Hi! So the degree, as I stated in the original post, is Tourism and Hospitality. This means the majority of the course is hospitality skills such as management skills, basic hotel work and the rest of what you stated. This particular uni offers a placement year with Marriott Hotels with a guaranteed job at the end of it if you perform well. I understand I’m young and less experienced than you, however looking at what I have just explained, I’m sure you can see why this degree seems worth it?

Not really - no. DO you really need to be spending £27K to do the same job as someone who starts as a chamber maid.

Yes, Tourism is competitive. Especially for businesses such as Marriott Hotels, you need something to make you stand out and that in this case would be a degree.

Yes, a lot of money. But a joint degree with tourism and a chance to study a language alongside with it means standing out in the field. It could be a chance worth taking...
