Applied learning

Live projects
As part of this course, you will undertake a large real-world project worth 40 credits to deliver an arts and entertainment-based event here in Sheffield. You will have the autonomy to create, market and deliver the event, supported by experienced tutors.

Field trips & Industry Engagement
You have access to work experience opportunities across various event sectors (including the arts and entertainment sector) available from an online portal updated in real-time with roles ranging from local charity events to international festivals in Europe.

Your modules will also feature arts and cultural visits in and around the region.

Networking opportunities
Our links with industry mean that you hear from a wide range of guest speakers. Previous guest speakers have included Martin Green of the London 2012 organising committee (LOCOG), Simon Graveling of Athens 2004, London 2012 and Sochi 2014; David Jamilly of Theme Traders, and Jon Hughes from KPMG.

As a top up route there is no placement opportunity with this course, however there are still a number of applied learning indicatives you will have access to. On top of the Live Event module you will be using real-world case studies and examples in class.
