Tourism Degree Internships: A Longitudinal Study
Busby, Graham
Journal of Vocational Education and Training, v55 n3 p319-334 Sep 2003
This case study briefly reviews the development of tourism degrees in the United Kingdom before considering the experiences obtained by students on year-long internship programmes over a period of 8 years. Verbatim confidential comments, from students, are provided and specific transferable skills discussed. Whilst some skills can be developed during the course of an academic programme, it is argued that the internship period can provide a wider range and help clarify career intentions. (Contains 2 tables.)
