BA Degree in Hospitality and Business Management

Rachael Muburi
Everyone at Westminster Kingsway College has such a passion for Hospitality and the lecturers are great. They really know about the industry and they can share their own passion for the subject. The College has really helped me to believe in myself and stay focused throughout my studies. We were asked to write down our objectives at the start of the year and I looked at them recently and had achieved everything I set out to do which was great.
