Events and Experience Management with Foundation Year - York St John University

Events Management is an exciting and constantly evolving industry. From exclusive, intimate occasions to global extravaganzas, you will learn to plan events on any scale and of any kind. If you love taking care of the details, thinking on your feet and using your creativity to deliver professional, memorable events then this is the degree for you. Event Management requires many different skills and you will cover a wide range of approaches to the subject. From the initial planning to on-the-day delivery, you will build the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to deliver successful events. You will learn to manage different types of events, how to design events, how to manage people, how to promote your event through marketing expertise, and how to build your own events business. We’ll also investigate how events can contribute to the growth and regeneration of their host regions and consider the responsibilities businesses have to the wider community. York is a great setting in which to learn about and gain experience of event management. Events like the Ebor Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire, Aesthetica Short Film Festival, The Yorkshire Fringe and The Great Yorkshire Show are right on our doorstep. We have partnerships with organisations throughout the city and the region and you will have plenty of opportunities to put what you learn into practice and gain real industry experience. All of our courses offer the option of a full placement year between your second and third years of study, giving you a substantial body of work experience which will be extremely valuable as you move forward in your career. There are also opportunities to study abroad as part of your degree, extending your range of your event management experience even further.
