School of Tourism’s Alexandra Correia is awarded her PhD

Last week, part time PhD student Alexandra Correia had her Viva Voce for her PhD titled “An examination of inter-business cooperation by wine and tourism small and medium-sized businesses in the Douro Valley of Portugal”. Alexandra was awarded her PhD subject to a few minor changes.

Alexandra commented on the experience:

The completion of the PhD represents the fulfilment of a very much awaited goal. Writing the thesis was simultaneously a challenging journey and a greatly rewarding learning process.

 Having the opportunity to be supervised by such a good supervision team (Professor Roger Vaughan, Professor Alan Fyall and Dr Philip Alford) made this an unforgettable and enriching experience.

 Alexandra continued “The final step – the Viva Voce, as part of the all experience, was equally gratifying.   In the end, having achieved the PhD makes me to look back and be 100% sure that this journey and all the associated efforts were worthwhile.

 Congratulations from everyone in the School of Tourism to Alexandra on this incredible achievement!
