Merlin link boosts students' career prospects

UCLan Tourism is proud of its links with Merlin Entertainments, which have continued to develop over the last couple of years.

First year students undertake a consultancy project based around the Blackpool cluster of attractions, whilst Merlin recently took part in our inaugural Employers Forum. This event gave students invaluable help and advice on their future careers.

Merlin also sponsor a prize for graduates which is awarded to the person who demonstrates exceptional academic performance during their degree studies. Adam Smith was last year's winner, and he has subsequently secured a role with the company.

Their Accelerate Business Management and Marketing programmes provide a route to some of world's most popular attractions including LEGOLAND®, Thorpe Park, Chessington World of Adventures, Madame Tussauds, SEA LIFE, Alton Towers Resort, Warwick Castle, The Dungeons and The London Eye.

The schemes are focused on giving you all the skills you will need to make an attraction a great success. With exciting roles, professional training, a vast support network and career progression available on a global scale, Merlin is the ideal place to kick-start your career.
