Events is one of the most dynamic, exciting business sectors, and our International Event Management degree will equip you with the knowledge, practical skills and experience needed to professionally manage events in a variety of areas.

You will gain practical experience to plan and execute your own event, and the optional placement year is an excellent opportunity to build contacts and gain an advantage in the job market. In your second year, you have the opportunity to focus your studies further and specialise in marketing by moving to our International Event Management with Marketing BSc(Hons). As members of the Association for Events Management Education (AEME), we have a longstanding association with the field.
