 Travel and Tourism

One of the things people enjoy most is leisure time. With modern life putting demands on how much free time we have, our spare time must be spent well. Expertise is needed and this is where Boston College’s Travel and Tourism courses come in.

Whether you want to see the world or stay closer to home, there is a course for you. When you study Travel and Tourism, the sky’s the limit!

A Travel and Tourism course opens up a world of career opportunities within one of the biggest and fastest growing industries in the UK introducing you to interesting topics related to the tourist economy.

We offer access to expert staff and fantastic trips to put your knowledge into practice. Recent trips include New York, Paris, Centre Parcs, Winter Wonderland and Monarch Airline Training. This allows you to study the roles of cabin crew, tour operators, holiday reps, and customer service across the industry and gain valuable knowledge to help in your course and future career.
