UWTSD Swansea has been successfully running Events Management programmes for nearly 10 years and has been responsible for educating some of the nations leading event managers. In 2019 the University launched a unique Educational Partnership with the Ironman Wales Event in Tenby providing the catalyst to launch these exciting Events and International Festivals courses specifically designed to develop the event managers of the future. The programme has been developed through close liaison with the events industry and by listening to our students to ensure we provide the most effective mix of academic studies and practical event management learning. The portfolio offers a choice of a 3 year BA degree, 2-year Diploma of Higher Education, or a 1-year Certificate of Higher Education all focusing on providing students with the professional event planning and operational skills demanded by the industry. The unique learning environment will provide students with the opportunity to bring their learning alive through involvement in events projects and industry visits which enable them to see behind the scenes at major venues and network with leading events managers. This will be supported by paid internships and volunteering opportunities in the UK and Internationally with events venues, festivals, sports events and convention centres designed to develop the student's professional events management skills in order to enable them to quickly progress in this dynamic industry.
