Department of Events
The events industry is integral to cities, regions and countries and our courses will enable you to develop specialised skills and knowledge in the thriving events sector alongside a foundation in business management.
We have industry partners who help us deliver our modules, allowing you to draw upon their wealth of experience in business, and we provide the opportunity to study and become engaged with numerous events that take place throughout the year.
Our Professional Training placements offer you the opportunity to look beyond the UK and consider events on an international scale. You will benefit from our location in the thriving economy of the south east, as well as our close proximity to London.
"Our courses are dynamic and active, and they include running your own live event, designing and pitching an event idea, analysing experiences, conducting risk assessments and engaging with event entrepreneurs. It all adds up to knowledge base that will impress an employer to look at you as a future event professional."Dr Graham Berridge, Head of Department for Events
