What comes next?

You can continue to finish an undergraduate degree in the field of tourism, travel or, perhaps, even the leisure industry or event management.

Your HND is equivalent to the first two years of an undergraduate degree so you should be eligible for direct entry to the final year of a three-year undergraduate degree in a related field. Different universities will have different entry requirements (in terms of the grade they require in your HND) so it is worth checking this as soon as you decide which university you might like to attend.

Alternatively, if you wish to go straight into work with your HND, you’ll find that you can apply for more senior or more specialist roles than before.
