Philip Almond, the trip's organiser from Al Ain Women's College, said the visit took place during Independent Learning Week, which brought academic, cultural and social benefits to the students.

While in London, the students visited The Bank of England where they gained an insight into the history of the bank. They also visited the UAE Embassy to learn about their role and the way the embassy helped UAE nationals living in the UK.

Popular tourist attractions on the agenda included the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge, Windsor Castle and a visit to Madame Tussauds.

A highlight of the trip was when the students visited East Berkshire College and gave a presentation about the UAE and HCT to a group of Travel and Tourism students.

"Students purchased small gifts and souvenirs to remind them of their trip," he added. Faculty members Salam Nehme and Phil Almond accompanied the students on the trip, which was sponsored, by Etihad Airways and Al Amaan Travel.
