Hey,

They all seem similar, I would maybe go for the Tourism and Hospitality Management because 3/4 of the ones you selected are in management and 3/4 are in tourism while 1 of the 4 is in Events so with Tourism and Hospitality Management sounds like it would include the tourism side of things with hospitality which would give you skills that can be applied to events.
I would also look at the Earning potential, Career prep (if you would need any more further training or studying), subjects covered, and the institutions/ School that offer them and their ranking to aid in your decision making

Hope this helps.

Well what should I do instead? I’m leaving college with a travel and tourism course so where do I got from that? You being negative isn’t really helping me.

You should do a course that leads to a career that you actually want to do and pays you enough for what you want to do in your personal life.

That’s the only answer anyone can give you.

All of these courses would lead to something I would want to do, I’m not 100% sure what exact job but definitely in these sectors.

Hey,

Maybe read abit more onto the career prospects or opportunities in the field of tourism,
https://www.prospects.ac.uk/careers-...el-and-tourism
you can also refer to peoples experiences such as looking at blogs, vlogs, youtube or asking anyone in the field and see what type of jobs they managed to land/ career path they took for inspiration.

Hope this helps.

As a general rule of them, ignore anon posters.

Have you considered combining either tourism or events with business management or does that not interest you?

Just remember that whatever you choose, you want to do it and that you're not forcing yourself to study something that you wouldn't enjoy.

Thank you! I’m leaning towards tourism and Hospitality just so that if the tourism industry is still recovering, I could go into hospitality for a while. Thank you for your help! My concern with marketing is I don’t know a lot about it x

It does interest me, I’m just not sure how I could do a degree in it. Most unis offer business management or events or tourism and so on. It’s rare that they have joint honours so I’m struggling to find the perfect degree haha

Again, where do I go from studying travel and Tourism at college? I don’t have a lot of options after what I studied at college so if you have an idea please let me know

No problem! I wouldn't worry about not knowing much about it tbh, most courses teach the content from scratch without expecting previous experience

I would pick tourism, I’m going into 2nd year in September. It’s an industry in the dumps right now but will obviously recover gradually as countries relay on tourists so highly for their economies. It’s an interesting course and mine contains many management models anyway.

All industries will be affected so anything to do with business/finance and travel will affected - including tourism. A degree is no guarantee of a job either as we are entering a hard recession.

Thank you! It’s my main interest so I’d love to study it! It’s just worrying as I come from a deprived area I’m going to study to gain employment. So I am praying that the rest of the UK opens up new job opportunities that I can move to and work at x
