IGCSE Travel and Tourism could lead on to a more vocationally-related course or further study of A' Levels.

Cambridge IGCSEs are accepted by leading Universities and employers around the works as evidence of academic achievement. Many Universities require a combination of AS & A' Levels and IGCSEs or equivalent to meet their entry requirements.

Before you start your tutor will contact you to welcome you and, if you’re new to Learn Now, help you understand what study will be like. They’ll also clarify how and when they can be contacted, and how quickly they will respond to you.

Once you’ve started your tutor will mark and provide feedback on your assignments and support your progress throughout the course.

This course is 100% exam based. Therefore you will not need to arrange for any coursework or practicals to be administered.

The IGCSE is an international alternative to the GCSE and as the subjects are normally exam based only, make them ideal for students who are unable to attend a local school or college.

IGCSEs are internationally recognised and as well as being available in the UK, are also available worldwide. They are recognised by leading universities and employers worldwide, and are an international passport to progression and success.

It all depends on when you enrol. You will need to check the exam dates for your IGCSE subject and the number of guided learning hours to ensure that you can achieve your goals.
