Subject

Event management

The BSc (Hons) Events Management degree at Lincoln aims to help aspiring events professionals to develop their creativity, organisational skills and practical problem-solving abilities while building a critical understanding of the theory behind successful events. Events Management at Lincoln is a cross-disciplinary subject which gives students the opportunity to develop an understanding of events in a physical, social and cultural context. The course provides students with opportunities to undertake live projects and work placements to gain practical event experience.

Modules

In the first year, the course introduces the broad subject areas that feed into the organisation and management of events, including financial communications, advertising, the experience economy and marketing. The second year focuses more closely on specific events practices, and students can organise and host an assessed event. At this stage, students have the opportunity to study abroad for two terms at a partner institution. Students who choose to study abroad must pay any travel, accommodation and general living costs. In the final year, students may write a dissertation or take part in a live consultancy project. For the most up to date module information, please visit the course page for this programme on our website. Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.

Assessment methods

The way students will be assessed on this course will vary for each module. It could include coursework, such as a dissertation or essay, written and practical exams, portfolio development, group work or presentations to name some examples. Throughout this degree, students may receive tuition from professors, senior lecturers, lecturers, researchers, practitioners, visiting experts or technicians, and they may be supported in their learning by other students.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This course sits in a wide group of smaller subjects that don't necessarily have that much in common - so bear this in mind when you look at any employment data. Most graduates took a hospitality, events management or tourism-related course, but there are a group of sports and leisure graduates in here as well who do different things. Events management was the most common job for graduates from this group of subjects, and so it’s no surprise that graduates from specialist events management courses did better last year than many of the other graduates under this subject umbrella - but all did about as well as graduates on average or a little better. If you want to find out more about specific job paths for your chosen subject area, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do, or to have a look at university department websites.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
