Why choose
this course?

  • This programme will provide you with the specialist knowledge, expertise and skills required to succeed in the rapidly evolving events sector.
  • During the programme you’ll work in a group to put on a live event, giving you the opportunity to apply, evaluate and build on your learning.

Your tutors will also introduce you to guest lecturers working in the event industry who give fascinating up to date insights.
  • You’ll have invaluable opportunities to access networks of event managers through these guest lectures and build links to events companies – this has led to some students securing jobs in the event industry as soon as they complete their studies.
