Upon successful completion of the exam and practical assessments (as administered by CIE), you will have achieved an internationally recognised CIE IGCSE Travel and Tourism (4TRA) qualification.

This course is divided into 2 units:
Paper 1: Scenario based questions with short answers (60% of marks).
Paper 2: Scenario based questions with short answers (40% of marks).
The CIE IGCSE Travel and Tourism qualification is gained once the two exam papers are successfully completed. These exams are administered by CIE and assessment centre details will be included with your course, as well as practice papers so that you are more than prepared for your assessments.
In addition, there will be a number of tutor marked assessments (TMAs) to ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the course materials, with the tutor sending comments to guide you through any areas of potential difficulty, as well as a range of self-assessments that are indicators that you understand the materials as you work through them. These are for your own information, and do not need to be shown to your course tutor.
Method of study
The course is primarily an online course using a Learning Management System (LMS).
The online course has many features that cannot be printed such as embedded videos, forums and interactive tests.
The course includes Tutor Marked Assessments which you access and submit through the online system.
Our IGCSE courses come with tutor feedback and support by email for 12 months. They will mark your TMAs and provide valuable guidance through any trickier parts of the course whenever you need it. You will also receive a study guide to help you with all aspects of studying, essay writing and general student skills.
