Event management is an exciting industry. You will need skills in creativity, team working and project planning to be successful. Our degree offers plenty of hands-on opportunities to develop these skills whilst organising a range of events as part of the course. Our course is recognised by the Tourism Management Institute and you’ll engage with the tourism and events industry throughout your studies. We work with a number of leading events organisations, offering you valuable work experience during your course. You'll also develop live event briefs for local and regional organisations. This provides experience in managing social media for events – a great opportunity to enhance your CV. An overseas residential study tour is a highlight of the course. We have also previously visited the London Olympic Games and International Confex, the World Travel Market and Travel Technology Europe in London. Graduates from our Events Management degree have gone into roles such as: conference and event organisers within local, regional, national and international destination management organisations, voluntary roles or events managers for local and national charities, including Cancer Research UK, conference and banqueting sales managers within the accommodation sector, meetings and events coordinators and marketing managers within the visitor attraction sector.
