“UCEN Manchester had the exact requirements I was looking for, a three-year full-time course two and a half days a week, free parking and easily accessible to me on the transport routes.

“My time here has opened my eyes to possibilities I had never thought of, has given me the drive to succeed and the confidence to make new friends. I am now excited for the future and developing my career in the Tourism industry.”
