Bachelor of Business in International Tourism Management - Max Reid

All the way from the Wicklow Mountains, I decided to move to Galway and study the Bachelor of Business in International Tourism Management at GMIT.

I chose to study this course because I felt it offered a diverse taste of what the tourism industry provides as an exciting career.

Over my three years, I have had many memorable moments. My highlights would have to be, our course trips to Irelands most popular tourist attractions, our overnight stays at the Aran Islands and our international mandatory study trip to Lisbon, Portugal.

The work experience was very enjoyable. For my 12-week international placement I travelled to New Zealand where I worked in the hospitality and tourism industry for the summer. The work experience was an important part of the course that gave me a valuable insight into the tourism industry.

I have received so many amazing opportunities thanks to the Galway International Hotel School, who all give incredible support to their students. Once graduated, I would like to obtain a post-graduate degree with Fáilte Ireland or Tourism Ireland. The world is your oyster with this course.
