Although I consider the academic staff to be the best part about the University, Plymouth also boasts many extra-curricular activities, resources, and opportunities for graduate students - there is something for everyone. I've had the opportunity to attend international conferences, research seminars relevant to my field as well as postgraduate taught classes. The opportunities and skillset I have gained at Plymouth are, for me, beyond value. Not only have I nurtured my research skills in relation to my academic interests, but also, I’ve been able to gain valuable experience in developing other skills, such as in presenting, teaching, and even experience in supervising projects. This combination of skills, conference funding, and training opportunities, for me, have dramatically increased my confidence as a researcher and have been invaluable for my future career as an academic.
My choice to attend University of Plymouth School of Tourism and Hospitality was one of the best decisions I could have made. If you are looking for a PhD in Tourism that provides you with strong academic and personal support, together with a plethora of opportunities for professional development, then the University of Plymouth School of Tourism and Hospitality is for you.
