Do you want to create truly unforgettable events? Our hands-on degree – developed with industry – gives you the insight, know-how and skills to become a critical, creative events professional.

In the past our students have visited event venues in Prague, attended a bespoke training session at Disneyland Paris and explored Amsterdam at night through a series of free events across the city. Lay strong foundations for a successful career using our extensive industry links to secure a one-year work placement in the UK or abroad. Gain vital industry experience – students have worked at international exhibitions, organised Christmas parties for over 900 guests, and taken part in marketing activities and corporate team building. Learn from the best – our teaching staff are all actively engaged in the research of industry leadership, employer needs, planning, communication, event innovation, evaluation and other management issues. Create a portfolio before you even graduate. Assessments are linked to real clients throughout the course, and you’ll have the chance to develop professional materials and presentations to explain your ideas. In previous years, clients have used winning ideas in their business operations. Future-proof your career and benefit from a course that views sustainability as a crucial factor in the events industry. You’ll examine the social, economic, political, cultural and environmental dimensions related to the issue of sustainability. In the 2016 National Student Survey, 80 per cent of students were satisfied overall, 85 per cent of graduates felt staff were good at explaining things and 93 per cent felt they received sufficient advice and support.
In your first year, we’ll introduce you to how events fit into the exciting world of arts, entertainment and the media.

Plus you’ll have the chance to study hospitality for events, or a language, including French, German, Mandarin or Spanish. This year you’ll develop your knowledge and skills by studying a range of core modules, getting hands-on experience managing and promoting specific events. You will enhance your health and safety knowledge through the crowd behaviour and risk management module. You’ll investigate research methods, giving you the skills required to engage in both academic and business research – invaluable for placements or careers that involve market research.
