Programme structure

In Year 1, students pursue a number of core modules which include business and event-specific modules.

In Years 2 and 3, students further develop theoretical and practical skills and explore some of the specialist areas of event management. Single Honours students elect some of their own preferences from a number of options.

In Year 3, students work on a live event project which involves planning and delivering an event for a client. Students also undertake an extended independent study module and may choose from a consultancy project, a part-time work placement or a dissertation.

Students explore the theories and concepts of events; the vocational nature of the subject and the nature and characteristics of events workplaces; the environmental context of event management; the techniques needed to operate effectively in the events industry; the skills needed to research and present findings in the events domain; and the generic knowledge and skills needed to
