Former Travel student Joseph Harrison
After completing his Travel and Tourism course at college, Joseph Harrison graduated with a 2.1 BA Hons degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management from University College Birmingham. His qualifications have seen him work at both at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando and as a Passenger Services Agent for Virgin Atlantic.
The 24-year-old said: “School wasn’t for me so when I applied to college I honestly didn’t know what to expect! Travel and tourism had always been a passion for me, and City of Wolverhampton College allowed me to take the first stepping stone in my career, opening up a new world.
“I had the mind set in the first term to stick with the pass grades but with advice and guidance from the lecturers I was achieving distinction grades before I knew it! The lecturers really invested their knowledge to guide each student.
“It has been a crazy seven years since I enrolled at Wolves College. I’ve since gone onto working in America twice and graduating from university. Put your best foot forward to realise that the world can really be your oyster! No questions asked, I wouldn’t have changed anything for the world!”
