How to enrol

Brigitte Bougoure

Training that takes you places

"The most appealing quality of this course was the ‘real industry' experience element – I didn't want to just study the theoretical components of tourism and events. One of the highlights was working on an external ‘real' event. Working on this event gave me insightful experience into my chosen industry, not to mention a handful of contacts to get my industry network started."
