Could you plan, deliver and orchestrate an event such as a music festival? Where would you start? What would you need to consider? You will know all this by Year Two of this course. By Year Three you will understand who your audience is and what makes them return and promote your event for you.
What you'll learn
In Years One and Two of the Events and Festival Management (Hons) course from Queen Margaret University you will focus on the specifics of events and festivals management, plus general management skills such as marketing, accounting and human resources.
In Year Two you will put theory into action when you plan and deliver a live event. Our students have organised unforgettable fashion shows, music nights, charity dinners and sports days, often raising thousands of pounds for charities in the process. You will critically consider the purpose of events and their political and social impacts.
Years Three and Four will deepen your understanding of how events and festivals relate to national and international strategic issues, such as how cities use events for image development and investment purposes. You will look at audience development and engagement, why do some ideas catch on instantly when others fade into obscurity? This is when you will refine the focus of your learning, choosing the elective modules that you are most passionate about. You will undertake a consultancy project for an events industry partner.
If you continue to honours, you will develop leadership skills in international events and examine how events contribute to social justice. You will complete a dissertation in an area of your choice and undertake a placement within the events industry, preparing you for graduation and your future career.
You will have the in-demand skills and confidence to kick-start your career with a role in events management, festival management, sporting events management and many other interesting fields. Recent graduates are carving out impressive careers as General Manager, Events Coordinator, Performer Co-ordinator, Conference and Events Manager, Events Executive at VisitScotland, Events and Groups Executive at Apex Hotels and Front of House Supervisor at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
