Students experience Lisbon at their leisure

For most students, it’s not often you get given an exclusive guided tour of one of Europe’s most exciting cities.

When the opportunity fell to our Tourism and Event Management students to spend a week touring the historical landmarks of Lisbon, they jumped at the chance.

Ondraela Gjini, final year BA International Tourism Management top up student, said: “I have really enjoyed the Lisbon trip. It has been an invaluable experience to learn more about tourism and events in another culture and from a completely different perspective.” Read the full story.
