Sheffield Hallam University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This course is based on the final year of our BSc (Honours) Events Management (Arts and Entertainment). It allows you to top up a HND, foundation degree or equivalent in a relevant subject to a honours degree level in Event Management.
You will learn the specific skills to create, manage and deliver events within the arts and entertainment sector. This could include events in arts venues, live gigs, museums, cultural attractions and festivals. This course will give you an understanding of how events in this sector are strategically managed and funded from both a political and cultural perspective.
How you learn

Field trips, site visits and work with external organisations enhance your engagement and understanding of the complexities and challenges of operating in the international events industry particularly in the arts and entertainment sector.

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.
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.
