Why choose travel and tourism at West Notts?

Take part in trips

Students studying travel and tourism have the opportunity to take part in UK and overseas residential visits. Past trips have included visits to major UK cities, and further afield including Cyprus, Lanzarote, New York and The Gambia.

The trip to The Gambia in 2020 was described as ‘life-changing’ by many students as they got to see so much of a different culture as well as learning about responsible tourism in this part of Africa. They were able to sample the wonderful food and traditional outfits at the Cooking with Ida experience, meet children in the local schools and go on a wildlife canoe ride up the River Gambia.

Student Jessica Darwood-Brown captured some amazing footage of this visit.
