This gives you a real-world experience to prepare you for your future career. Recent placements have included Disneyland in Florida, in hotels and resorts across America, Canada, Spain, France, Dubai and the Maldives, and with national and regional destination management organisations such as the Netherlands Board of Tourism and Conventions, the Isle of Man Department of Tourism, and Visit Peak District and Derbyshire, as well as for major tour operators such as TUI and Sunvil.
