Last week our Level C Tourism Management got the chance to go on a 3 day trip to Jersey to learn about Jersey Tourism.
The students travelled to Jersey by ferry on Friday 12th October and arrived just after midday after a very rocky journey!
Once they arrived they met with Jersey Tourism Marketing Manager, Simon Le Huray and Jersey Conference Bureau General Manager, Hamish Reid.
On Saturday the students split into two groups for sightseeing around the island. The students got the chance to visit La Hougue Bie, the Jersey War Tunnels and Mont Orgueil.
In the afternoon the students got the chance to visit La Mara Wine Estate for a tour and tasting session.
In the evening students had a 3 course dinner provided to them by the University at the Farm House in Jersey.
On Sunday, students were free to explore the island by themselves before returning on the ferry that evening.
Philip Long, Associate Dean of Tourism, who attended the trip commented “The recent field trip to Jersey for level C tourism students was a great experience for all concerned. Particular credit is due to Claire Taylor and John Brackstone for organising a memorable programme that combined learning about tourism ‘on the ground’ with bringing the students and staff representatives together as a community of scholars!”
