About

In your first year, you will establish core events management skills, after which you can tailor the course to match your interests and career goals. You can choose to specialise in one of our four specialisms - business, sports, celebratory or musical and cultural events - or shape your degree to focus on management areas such as events marketing or new product development. From your first year, you'll have the opportunity to run your own events. From product launches to arts festivals, wedding planning to creative event design, you'll develop your understanding of this multi-disciplinary sector.

You’ll use industry-standard software to design and deliver events for external clients, learning to manage events on all scales. You’ll undertake work experience each year with the option to spend a year in industry on the four-year sandwich course. Students have recently worked for Concert Live, Collection 26, the Natural History Museum, Silverstone, BMW, Sea Pines Resort (USA) and Gloucestershire-based Wychwood Music Festival.

You’ll be supported to develop an industry-facing portfolio of projects and experiences and you will graduate as a creative and entrepreneurial events professional.

The Events Management program is delivered by the University of Gloucestershire.
