My name is Sandra Preye Nelson-Charpidou, I am a Nigerian, married to a Greek. I decided to embark on a career in hospitality and tourism management and searched for the best institute in Greece offering a high-quality education in this field in the English language. I fell upon Swiss Alpine Center and learned of their partnership with City Unity College whereby students enrolled on the Swiss Alpine Diploma in Hotel Management had the possibility to graduate with dual qualifications: The Swiss, and the British since Cardiff Metropolitan University, UK validated Alpine Center’s courses and offered the BA(Hons) International Hospitality & Tourism Management. My learning experience was superb. The faculty are very caring and qualified, and so is the administrative staff. Our lecturers were friendly and inspiring and brought the best out of each student. They encouraged us to think critically and to be innovative. The location of the college is also very pristine and beautiful in the coastal suburb of Athens, Vouliagmeni. It is unique in that it has an operating hotel as part of the campus and that’s where we were able to follow the Swiss way of education, blending practicals with theory. What I enjoyed being a student of City Unity College is the diverse background of students coming from all corners of the world, and this by itself was an interesting cultural diversity experience which is so needed in the hospitality industry. I feel privileged and honoured to be a graduate of both Swiss Alpine Center and Cardiff Metropolitan University. During the Annual Career Days, organized by the dynamic Career & Placement Office, I had the opportunity to interview with leading hotels in Greece and was offered a few opportunities. Now that I am a happy graduate of City Unity College, I feel well equipped with an excellent combination of skills in hotel operations, sales and marketing, human resources, finance and accounting and business planning and entrepreneurship. I can handle multiple responsibilities and successfully meet deadlines. God bless all my lecturers at Swiss Alpine Center/City Unity College.
