Program Description

Inspirational events which create lasting memories need careful management and preparation, in order to ensure they are delivered efficiently, effectively and safely. By studying event management at Coventry, you’ll have the opportunity to be able to learn how to manage events, and get the chance to apply theory to practice throughout your course.

This course will not only aim to give you the opportunity to gain the skills and knowledge necessary for organising successful, memorable and safe events, but will also provide the opportunity to allow you to explore a broad range of highly transferable management skills, particularly in the area of leadership and project management.

You’ll have the opportunity to undertake multiple industry visits and field trips, at home and abroad, as well as being able to get hands-on experience managing live events, with opportunities available across a range of sectors (Please note that all are subject to availability, competitive application processes, meeting applicable visa requirements, and additional costs may apply).

The optional sandwich year gives you the opportunity to apply for a placement, or study abroad year*, which can be spent overseas (studying with one of our partner universities, or working) or on a placement in the UK. Sandwich years could give you the opportunity to improve your employability skills through workplace experience), or the chance to develop your abilities to work or study in different countries and with people from different backgrounds.

If you have a passion for events and want to work in the event sector, upon successful completion, our course could help you realise your ambition.
