Student interview: Kylie Harris from WairarapaPosted on 13/03/2019 by Jess O'Connor
Every month, we interview a Study From Home student (past or present) to provide insight on what it’s like to study travel and tourism from home with ITC.
This month, we spoke to Kylie Harris who recently completed the Certificate in Travel and Tourism with a strand in Aviation (Level 3).
Kylie has an illness that prevented her from attending in-person classes, which made ITC Study From Home the perfect fit.
Thanks to distance learning, she was able to complete her qualification from the comfort of her home in Carterton, Wairarapa.
Below, she gives us an insight into her journey so far, as well as shares some tips for students considering studying from home with ITC.
What inspired you to study travel and tourism?
I really enjoyed studying tourism in school and liked the thought of being a flight attendant.
What did you enjoy most about studying from home?
The ability to control your schedule. Being sick meant I had certain times of my day that I could study, and those times were ever-changing. It was great to know I wouldn’t fall behind and I could catch up in my own time.
Did you find anything challenging about studying from home?
The hardest part was probably self-motivation, but that’s easy to get past once you get into the groove of studying.
Do you have any tips for students who are thinking about studying from home?
- Make sure to take breaks.
- Set yourself a really good timetable.
- Have time away from the computer.
