Aisha Abdulai, HCIMA Award from the Institute of Hospitality Scotland, Edinburgh College 2015 Graduation
"Now that I have left
college, I have moved onto university to do a degree in International
Hospitality and Tourism Management. I have gone straight into third year
at Queen Margaret University after achieving the HND.
I am very grateful for my time at
Edinburgh College as it taught me a lot, again, not only about the
subject, but about myself too, and a lot of that's down to my lecturers
that I had over the two years. It was a great experience and I
thoroughly enjoyed my time there."
