We use authentic learning and assessments using scenarios from local business to the national and international business setting. The balanced approach of problem-based, real-life situations helps contextual the academic theory very effectively. This approach is seen as a strong point of differentiation compared to other event and tourism degree programmes on offer.
The Event and Tourism Management (Hons) programme of the University of Suffolk offers smaller class sizes than elsewhere, more personal support, inspiring modules, and a healthy dose of fun for students who aspire to build a successful career in events and tourism. Here, you receive excellent levels of support due to our small class sizes and personal tutors.
We work with you to help you get established in this competitive, fast-paced, global industry with opportunities to study and collaborate with a diversity of people and organisations. Also, our many field trips to locations including Spain extend your intercultural knowledge, and our long-standing industry connections provide exposure to real-world scenarios.
Our Events and Tourism team work closely with organisations and businesses to get you involved in ‘live’ events rather than simulations, and we start from the very beginning of your degree. The networks and connections you make are priceless. Many of our students particularly enjoy our involvement with festivals.
Our course is designed to teach you the skills needed for tourism jobs, such as Hotel Manager, Restaurant Manager and Event Organiser. We also support students to explore careers in other sectors including charity event fundraising – a brilliant alternative to the private sector. The degree also provides the necessary skills for jobs in public relations and marketing.
We have solid relationships with around 100 employers, who provide a multitude of opportunities to build key industry contacts and build your reputation throughout your degree. If you decide stay in Suffolk after graduation – a county attracting significant investment – you could have access to vacancies in booming industries ranging from the creative sector to food and drink.
Wherever you choose to work, we help you develop your CV so it showcases your skills, strengths, experience and ambitions.
