Subject

Event management

BA/BSc (Hons) Events and Festivals Management will give you the insight and skills to run exciting events for any purpose, scales or budget.

There are thousands of events which need organising - whether it's a local charity fundraiser, a music festival, a business conference, a convention or a sporting event. This is a vibrant, dynamic sector, global in its scope, that demands adaptability and quick thinking.

Taught at our Business School for the Creative Industries at UCA Epsom, this course will guide you through how to create an event, from the initial concept through to the organisation and curation of the participant's experience, and on to the final staging.

You will learn about forward planning, venue choice, programming, equipment, experience design and the important role played by food and drink. In addition, you'll learn how to set budgets, analyse data, comply with health and safety regulations and evaluate environmental concerns.

This course includes a Professional Practice Year, where you’ll spend two years studying your degree, before putting what you’ve learned into practice as part of a year-long work placement. You'll then return for your final year of study, where you'll be able to apply what you've learned.

Modules

Year one
You’ll be introduced to the various aspects of events and promotions management, learning how to understand design an experience, ensure it’s safe and how to cater for different consumers.
