For example, previous students have secured placements with Swissport and Jet2. Live projects In every year of your course, you’ll have the opportunity to work on live projects to build your skills and professional experience. Field Trips Field trips are an important part of your studies.

Some of the most popular field trips our Airline and Airport Management students have enjoyed have been to local and international airports.
