Entry requirements

A minimum of a second class honours degree (2:2) in any academic discipline, or equivalent overseas degree from a recognised institution.

Applicants who possess a diploma rather than a good degree may be eligible for entry provided they have compensatory work experience and can demonstrate career development.

Entry will also be subject to two satisfactory references (one of these must be an academic reference).

If English is not their first language students will need to satisfy the university's English language requirements: IELTS minimum level 6.0 (with a minimum of 6.0 in reading and writing, and 5.5 in listening and speaking) or equivalent. Students who have completed their undergraduate degree in the UK (at least one full year of study) will automatically meet the university’s English language requirements.

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t got experience in this area – we’ll give you the know-how you need.

Responsibility, sustainability, and inclusion are at the heart of this course. You’ll also benefit from a global programme of guest speakers. Hear from experts from all corners of the globe and learn about current issues for the industry such as event accessibility, and sustainability.

Take your learning beyond the lecture theatre with our practice focused electives. You can deliver a real-life event – with our Planning and Delivering the Sustainable Event module.
