I can see now how it all comes together, the last few years all makes sense in the final year" It's been a great course, so pleased I did tourism" "You've been there since day one in induction until now - thank you for looking after me" "It's been tough but I'm glad because I can be proud of myself now" "I loved that module "My project was immense, don't know what I would have done without my tutor" " Thanks so much for doing this. We really want to enjoy the end of all the hard work" " I've really enjoyed organising the ball, I got to feel really part of tourism but I wish people bought their tickets earlier!" "It's really good to see the tutors out of University. I feel like they are more my equal now" All my course mates are here and I can't stop crying, it's the last time I'll see everyone together"
"I enjoyed the feeling of Bonhomie at the event. We can all celebrate together" "Many students wanted to keep in touch and still be part of the tourism team" "I was surprised at how many students have got jobs,and good ones too" "Isn't it great to see everyone out of work" "Students told me some horror stories about some modules" "really heartening to see students who want to thank you for everything" "reminds me why I like doing my job" "Final year students have had time to reflect on the whole experience. They give you a much more positive view than the usual timetable gripes" "They said they were scared at the beginning of the final year but now feel like they have really learnt something" "I was surprised at the number of students who wanted to shake my hand"
