Course summary

Why study this course? Taught in the heart of London – one of the world’s great event capitals – this undergraduate degree will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the key principles of events management and the specialist skills required for a range of different roles. Taught by experts, you’ll also be mentored by leading industry figures and develop the experience and contacts you need for a successful career in events management. More about this course This degree has been designed to offer you a range of choices. Whether you want to focus on the academic study of events management or gain more practical skills as an entrepreneur or employee in the industry, you can create a programme that suits you. The course is recognised by The Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO), who are the UK’s leading professional body for conference and event organisation. ABPCO recognition for this course gives you access to exclusive networking opportunities and guest speakers. You’ll be taught by our experienced team and benefit from their years of experience in research and hands-on events management. Taught in the heart of London, you’ll also have the advantage of countless event opportunities available in the city. Throughout the course, you’ll study all aspects of events management – legal, human resources, logistics, marketing and finance – and gain the skills and know-how to create events from conception to conclusion, whether you're party-planning as an individual or playing a role in a wider organisation. You’ll also work closely with our industry partners across a range of fields including music, arts, fashion and corporate events. These partners will not only offer guest lectures throughout the course, they’ll also be actively involved in your development and act as mentors on practical modules and as recruiters, often employing interns and new graduates from our student/alumni pool. On graduation, you’ll have the experience and qualifications to forge a successful career in events management. You’ll also have a range of transferable skills in research, presentation, collaboration and self-management, which are highly sought-after in many industries. What our students say "What I enjoy most about the events management course is how multifaceted it is. By this I mean that it isn’t about the managing of an event alone. The course offers many aspects involving marketing, law, consultancy and human resources. For individuals who aren’t sure about what route to take within the events industry after graduating, the many different aspects the course offers can help students gain little insight into each of the paths that are involved with events management and can therefore help narrow down the pathway someone may be inspired to take."
