If English is not your first language, this subject-specific international foundation year is an ideal step towards degree-level education. It will give you the necessary academic English language ability and expertise to study an undergraduate degree in events management within UK higher education. If you require a Student Visa, you will not be eligible for this integrated course and instead should apply for the non-integrated International Foundation Year.

As part of your course, you will:

  • Build your intercultural awareness and self-confidence
  • Work on your communication, maths, research and study skills
  • Increase your skills in presentation, time management, problem-solving and planning
  • Gain an understanding of university life in the UK
  • Discover some of the fundamental principles of events management
  • Gain the ability to plan, promote and produce events of all sizes
  • Learn about managing staff and suppliers as well as adhering to licensing requirements

We’ll help you improve your subject knowledge, academic and study skills through projects, essays and practical exercises. You’ll be assessed by a mixture of coursework and classroom tests.

Academic support
You’ll be given access to online self-study resources and matched with an academic advisor who will offer you guidance throughout the course.

Expand your network
You’ll have a chance to meet students across the wider university through:

  • Joining clubs and societies
  • Taking part in university sport and active lifestyle activities
  • Volunteering
  • Becoming an international student ambassador
  • Course representative opportunities

Class study 
There will be a minimum of 15 hours classroom-based, daytime study per week across both semesters. This is in addition to a recommended 15 hours of self-study per week.
