Our vocationally orientated Event Management degree is recognised as one of the best in the country and will help you launch a career where you can really make an impact. At Winchester you learn how to combine creativity with careful planning to deliver memorable and well-managed events for the University and our many industry partners. It’s not all hands-on. You also acquire a thorough grounding in the strategic and managerial skills needed to function in any business environment. These can be road-tested on one of the many work placements offered by local employers who make regular contributions to the programme. There is an excellent range of practical modules and the university works closely with professional practitioners and expert speakers who can help to build up your industry network. Relatively small student numbers mean you receive excellent support from staff and have direct access to expert knowledge throughout the course. In Year 1, you are introduced to academic and professional studies and pursue a number of core modules which include business and event-specific modules. In Years 2 and 3, you further develop theoretical and practical skills and explore some of the specialist areas of event management such as Sports and Mega Events. In Year 3, you undertake an extended independent study module and may choose from a consultancy project, a part-time work placement or a dissertation. Other key modules include Contemporary Issues in Event Management; Festivals and Cultural Events, and Strategic Brand Management. A wide range of exciting opportunities are available to you within this buoyant and growing sector, which is estimated to be worth almost £50 billion to the UK economy by 2020. Graduates find jobs in event management companies, venues, leisure departments, festival and tourist organisations, publishing, PR, sport and entertainment.
