TRAVEL and Tourism students from South Essex College took a trip to Spain to study their subject in-depth.
The second year students who all study on the Travel and Tourism course at the College’s Thurrock Campus, flew to Malaga for a week.
They got to experience many different types of transport including British Airways flights and local sightseeing buses. They also visited a variety of tourist attractions including Malaga cathedral, Picasso’s birthplace, Gibraltar, Fuengirola Zoo and the whitewashed village of Mijas renowned for its donkey taxis.
Students also practised their Spanish language skills which will help them to pass a unit of the course.
Sue Tricio, Travel and Tourism Lecturer, led the trip. She said: “It was an amazing trip. The Director of the apartments we stayed in made a point of congratulating the students on their impeccable behaviour.”
Student Destiny Crosdale, 18, from south London, said: “My favourite part of the trip was the delicious seafood we got to try, it’s good to experience cuisines from other countries. It was an all-round great educational experience, the activities related to our course units and we were immersed in Spanish culture.”
