Muhammad Qayyum

"UCLan has given me a perfect stage to start my career journey in the hospitality industry. I have had some great opportunities to learn about the wider aspects of the hospitality industry not only within the UK but also on an international level. For example, the Berlin trip in the first year and visiting Reykjavik in the second year have completely changed my definition of travel and hospitality experience."
