Overview

Our programme strikes a balance between the academic context and the applied operational elements of event management. The applied approach to teaching is facilitated via an event volunteer programme – direct engagement with the event industry to provide you with first-hand experience of event management. Adding modules from Finance and Accounting will enable students to learn how to budget, write financial and business plans ready to enter the business industry.

Programme structure

The programme strikes a balance between the academic context for events, and an appreciation of the applied operational elements of event management. There is an ‘applied’ approach to learning and teaching, via direct engagement with the event industry. In doing so, the programme takes advantage of the enviable opportunities presented by the scale, wealth and diversity of events in the local and regional area including the Chichester Festivities, Arundel Festival, Goodwood Festival of Speed and Revival.

Specific elements of the teaching programme are delivered by event management professionals. A parallel event volunteering programme, run in conjunction with local event providers, also provides students with an opportunity to gain first-hand experience of event management. We offer a supportive learning environment and we take great pride in the quality of support that we provide to you. Emphasis is given to smaller group sessions, and modules are designed to be active and experiential so that the skills and knowledge you develop can be implemented in a realistic setting.

The first year of the programme shares much in common with other business and management programmes, and is designed to provide a solid underpinning in business-based subjects. During the second and final years of the programme, you will be able to demonstrate your acquired knowledge and skills through the conceptual planning, design and implementation of two major events.
