Study tourism and travel

Despite the hit to the sector due to the global pandemic, the industry is forecast to make a full recovery by 2025 with strong domestic tourism figures helping to make up the shortfall of international tourists. With many tourism operators currently facing staff shortages and an increase in demand for post-pandemic travel, now’s the time to join this global industry.
