In the fourth of our course spotlight stories, we spoke with Lance - Travel & Tourism BTEC Extended Diploma - Level 3. He shares his experiences on the course and his career plans beyond studying.
"I looked around at other Colleges, but Merton offered the best option for me.
I chose Travel and tourism because I wanted to gain extra qualifications, as my goal is to work in Cabin Crew of a major airline.
My first impressions were good, as the College has a relaxed and professional environment.
The most enjoyable of the course for me has been meeting new people and going on study trips.
As for teaching and level of support from tutors has been excellent.
My plans beyond my studies are either to do an apprenticeship in business management and then move onto a Cabin Crew job.
In terms of advice for students looking to study at Merton College is to make sure to stay focused, as the work builds up rapidly".
