The BA (Hons) Event Management programme is aimed to enable you to develop the necessary skills for, and knowledge, practice and understanding of, the events industry. The skills you will acquire on this course will be particularly relevant to event management roles in the tourism, hospitality, leisure and sport. The course begins with a general introduction to event management and progresses to specialist options and a close focus on planning, staging and managing events. In addition to this you will become a self-directed, self-regulated reflexive learner, using an awareness of opportunities for careers or further study in the setting and monitoring of personal objectives. You will combine academic study with real-world business practice as you work on case studies and briefs during practice weeks, and take opportunities to volunteer for events staged at the University and beyond.
