Dinisuru, a Hotel and Hospitality Management student at USW, found himself drawn to the institution because of its teaching quality and facilities. The work-based learning opportunity, a unique aspect of his course, intrigued him the most. "We were offered to work in a 5-star hotel, which is not seen in other degree programs".
He found the course diverse and engaging, taking great pleasure in the practical assignments. His part-time job at Celtic Manor Resort presented him with a fantastic opportunity to blend study with employment and hone his skills. "The academic knowledge I gained on my degree helped me on my placement, while the experience gained on the job assisted with the quality of my assignments."
From within the classroom, the use of 'HOTS' software has granted him the ability to virtually manage a simulated hotel, getting to understand how everything operates. This hands-on learning experience proved instrumental in preparing him for his career goals.
Aspiring to establish his own business in his home country, Dinisuru found the blend of academics and practical experience invaluable. He firmly recommends the course to anyone interested in a practical and industry-oriented study program.
