Course summary

The programme has been developed through close liaison with the events industry and by listening to our students to ensure we provide the most effective mix of academic studies and practical event management learning. The portfolio offers a choice of a 3 year BA degree, 2-year Diploma of Higher Education, or a 1-year Certificate of Higher Education all focusing on providing students with the professional event planning and operational skills demanded by the industry.

The unique learning environment will provide students with the opportunity to bring their learning alive through involvement in events projects and industry visits which enable them to see behind the scenes at major venues and network with leading events managers. This will be supported by paid internships and volunteering opportunities in the UK and Internationally with events venues, festivals, sports events and convention centres designed to develop the student's professional events management skills in order to enable them to quickly progress in this dynamic industry.

Course Overview

Events and Festivals have become a prevalent force for economic and socio-cultural development strategies for cities and destinations as well as a means to enhance business goals, resulting in a continual need for events graduate who understands the structure and functions of the industry including the importance of hospitality and guest service. This will be supported by a strong focus on management learning and the role of marketing and social media within the events sector.

As the programme develops students will focus on applying academic theories to real-life events case studies. This will include planning and managing live events as well as developing operational management knowledge and understanding both in the classroom and through behind the scenes events visits, paid events management placements and a range of volunteering opportunities.

Finally, the course will allow students to develop their strategic understanding of the events industry and develop specialisms in Sports Events, Festivals, Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Banquets. In line with the dynamic nature of the events industry, the course embeds creativity, essential skills and an entrepreneurial mindset to produce graduates who are ready for a diverse range of careers opportunities throughout the events sector.
