The Edge Hotel School is the home of degrees in hospitality and events management at the University of Essex. Here not only do you study the theory to achieve a degree in hospitality or events management, you gain invaluable experience in a real 4* hotel. The Events Management degree prepares you for the fast-paced world of planning and managing events. You will learn alongside lecturers who have worked on worldwide and high profile events while gaining experience of real weddings, conferences and private functions alongside your studies. Graduates of this programme could go onto careers working on weddings, sporting events, festivals, fashion shows, corporate events or conferences.
