Events entertain, inform and inspire people across the world.

Moreover, the course gives you the strategic planning skills to organise events that will achieve political, economic and social objectives.

Alongside our international reputation and impressive global connections, studying with us will mean you’ll learn from tutors with experience spanning festivals, sports, MICE, and non-profit events, and from talks by top industry experts. With continuous positive student feedback, our School of Hospitality and Tourism Management is one of the best in the world, being ranked in the top 10 by the QS World University Rankings 2020.

Our course and facilities provide an engaging environment in which you can develop and understand the challenges faced by events professionals.

You’ll take part in a series of modules designed to give you a forward-thinking understanding of the core elements of the industry and the skills required to be an effective businessperson and manager in this sector.
