Subject

Technical theatre studies

**BA (Hons) Live Events Production will prepare you for an exciting career in live experience and entertainment by introducing you to the technical, design and management areas of live events.**

In your first year, you’ll gain a strong understanding across a range of technical, creative and production management disciplines. In the second year, you will choose two subject areas to focus on. In your third year, you’ll choose just one pathway to specialise in.

With four distinct pathways for you to choose from, you can choose to specialise in the following areas:

- Lighting design and technology

- Live sound

- Live visuals

- Event business

Whether you’re interested in lighting a stage, projecting stunning visuals or running an events business, this degree allows you to focus on your chosen subject area whilst developing an underpinning knowledge of all four key areas. You’ll graduate as a specialised yet well rounded live events professional.

**Why study at the Academy of Live Technology?**
Our specialist courses have been developed with careers in mind. You’ll have access to work experience opportunities and award-winning partnerships to help you prepare for the world of work ahead of you.

When you study at the Academy of Live Technology, you’ll learn in a unique creative environment where some of the world’s greatest productions are put together. You’ll be taught by experts who bring their years of industry experience to your learning. You’ll see theory come to life as you get hands-on while you study.

The first two years of this course can also be taken as a foundation degree (FdA), after which there is then the option to carry on to the third year by applying for the BA (Hons) Top-Up.

The course is regulated by the Office for Students.

Assessment methods

Assessment is by portfolio, group practical, presentation and (where appropriate) a supporting piece of work relevant to the module. All assessments are based around you evidencing your skills and experience, reflecting upon how you are developing both professionally and personally and are a useful tool for you to set goals and targets.

You will also be expected to research methods and practices that are not covered in the module, and to relate and compare these to your learning.

Other work relevant to the module might include a stage design and layout, a festival event plan or perhaps a lighting design and visualisation.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
