Practice makes perfect

If you hate theory and want to study a tourism program that uses a practical approach, then this study from NHL Stenden is for you.
The approach of a practical tourism study program is great. Yet, the program itself may also still need a little more practice. As a student in the “guinea pig” year of tourism management, I have studied in both approaches: the Problem Based Learning and the Designed Based Education approach. With the change from one to the other system, you could tell the tutors were as clueless as the students regarding how to teach the right content. Depending on the tutor’s motivation, you either received a lot of help and insights or you would have more questions than answers. Yet, I believe the longer the DBE system is in use, the better the study program will be.
Besides this, I love my study program and the university. The university itself is very open, inclusive and international. The tourism management course gives a great insight into the tourism industry and sustainability and helps you become a tourism professional. I especially love working in groups together on real-life projects. We work together with DMOs, NGOs and other tourism organisations. Yet, I would have wished for some more known and perhaps international organisations since it is a tourism program. Nevertheless, the internationalism of the course is amazing as there are a variety of nationalities taking the course, and you learn a lot from each other and how to work with each other. And, of course, I love the international opportunities we get by studying abroad on grand tours or exchanges, and I love being able to write my thesis on the other side of the world.
Overall, I really enjoy the practical approach as it helps me learn the theory better and gives me real-life experience, yet the study program may need a little practice itself.
