Educating Global Event Professionals
The UK Centre for Events Management has a dedicated team of multi-disciplinary and experienced academic staff. We have a global reputation as a market leader in events management education, delivering stimulating courses across the breadth of events management - from festivals and cultural events, to international sport events and corporate launches.
As our industry faces unprecedented challenges with COVID-19, we continue to engage in government led forums and influence policy. We support our network of industry partners and our commitment to research. As a result, we are well positioned to continuously enhance our student experience as we all respond to the global pandemic.
We produce award winning students and alumni with an international reach. Our links with industry partners and associations, such as International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA), open up a world of opportunities for our students during their studies and following graduation. These great opportunities were reflected in the most recent National Student Survey (2020) when our students rated their overall satisfaction with their course at 91% (BA (Hons) Events Management and 90% (BA (Hons) Sports Events Management).
We focus on linking education with employment and inspire future leaders to transform practice, encourage critical thinking and make a positive contribution to the Events Industry.
Helping you get the job you want
Whether you want to manage a festival, run an events company or deliver a major sporting event, we will help you achieve your career ambitions. Our courses are designed to meet the needs and standards demanded by industry, and our undergraduate and postgraduate courses offer an optional sandwich year, giving you a one-year placement in industry. You can also get involved in lots of volunteering and paid work opportunities to build your experience and contacts.
