We chatted to one of our recent graduates from the Diploma of Travel & Tourism about her experience studying with us and where she is now. Check out what she had to say...
I wanted a role in the travel industry and had no idea on where to start. I figured the best way to get to get into the travel industry would be to get my Diploma so I would have a qualification behind me as well as a better understanding of the travel industry.
What motivated you to inquire about the Flight Centre Travel Academy Diploma?
What was the ultimate deciding factor to enrol in the Diploma of Travel and Tourism?I really wanted this career change and the opportunity to do a Diploma with Flight Centre seemed like the best opportunity for a career outcome. Also I loved the flexibility of the course - it was split between in class subjects in North Sydney as well as online subjects.
What parts of the course did you enjoy?
I really enjoyed my time in class with Renee. She was always very helpful and friendly and so supportive. She made the subjects very enjoyable.
What did you find difficult about the course and how did you overcome it?
I had not studied for a while so getting back into the swing of assessments and due dates was a little bit of a struggle. I spoke with Renee and she helped me work out my schedule/calendar for each subject and to focus on what was due over the next week or two. She taught me not get daunted by the whole semesters schedule.
