Responsible career choice for Olivia 

I would highly recommend studying Tourism at the University of Chester. All of the staff share the same passion for the subject and the support offered by the department throughout your degree is second to none.

My University of Chester Events Management BA (Hons) degree is the reason why I have secured my dream job of Event and Social Media Manager at the British Racing Driversʻ Club at the age of just 24 years old.

Make the most out of it – join societies, learn a language, work somewhere you wouldn’t have thought you could. Push boundaries and never stop learning.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and found it to be enthralling from start to finish. I would like to thank my lecturers, who were always supportive and more than happy to go out of their way to offer help. I would also like to thank the incredible team at the Work Based Learning Department for everything during my work experience. It is a fantastic feeling knowing that the hard work has paid off and I have landed my dream job of working within Finance for Kerry, which is the start of more exciting times ahead.

It’s completely different at university, but the lecturers are very supportive if you need help and I soon settled in and made great friends.
