Course summary

This degree emphasis on an applied and practical approach to teaching via direct engagement with the people relating to the event industry, culminating with students delivering their own events during the final two years of the degree. Instead of writing a thesis, students will spend their final year designing, producing and delivering a 'live' event for a client. It has been designed in consultation with professional event organisations to ensure an appropriate balance between the academic context for events, and an appreciation of the applied logistical, business and operational elements of event management. Professionals from the industry are also part of the teaching delivery team.

Our assessments are varied and students may be asked to write event proposals, operational plans, design social and multimedia tools or websites, plan live events and to deliver Power point pitches and presentations. We believe that this hands-on approach to learning and varied assessment is the most effective way to develop the skills that employers are looking for. Event Management students go on to work in the corporate, international hospitality, tourism, sport and charity sectors. Many have found jobs in the fields of social media, marketing, sponsorship, event management, fundraising, public relations, tourism management and venue management. Several of our students enter their industries at the junior management level.
