Hey, I wanted some advice, do you think it's better to do aviation and management course or modern languages at uni? ( I am passionate about learning languages although im not sure if it will be helpful and not want to go into business path.. any alternative?)

Currently I'm finishing BETC Level 3 in travel and tourism, my tutor suggested considering uni due to the current situation. I want to be a cabin crew member and unsure what to do when I finish college. Please help

I'm doing a languages degree atm, and honestly, there are so many way in which it can be helpful in later life! Most if not all airlines will do training courses for cabin crew, but learning a new language or two will help you to communicate with some of the people you're working with, as well as making travel to those countries more rewarding! I may be biased, of course, but you really can't go far wrong with a languages degree (as long as you don't want to become a scientist or something with a different academic focus!)

The travel industry is going down the pan and it will take years for it to recover. Avoid this as a potential career-path.
Honestly? Go to College and get yourself some A Levels. That BTEC will not get you anywhere meaningful.

Yh I already know two languages (Italian and Punjabi cos i was born in Italy and Punjabi coz that’s what my parents speak) which uni do u think is good? Where u don’t have to stay long e.g 5 years for a degree which one are u currently attending would u say its good?

In the UK most languages degrees are 4 years... if you study French then there's the University of London Institute in Paris which is 3 years (because there's no year abroad) but I don't know of any other 3 year courses. Most will also require a Btec or an A level in at least one 1 one the languages you want to study at uni, so you'd probably have to do a foundation year or do an A level in a language if you don't have one already.
I'm at Cambridge so you probably wouldn't want to come here if you're not sure about whether you want to go to uni at all... it's kinda intense, although I love it! You could think about a combined degree - travel and tourism with a modern language, or something!
