BA (Hons) coursesCreative Events Management

Course outline

Our course allows students to ‘learn by doing’ wherever possible, whether writing marketing plans, programming an arts centre or through the ‘live’ arts event project.

When working on your projects, you will work in small teams to set up a ‘working events production company’ which will see you organising a range of arts and other events such as festivals, exhibitions, fashion shows, arts workshops, theatre productions and/or dance events. All events are ‘for real’ – real audiences, working with real artists and performers, real venues, real budgets, real contracts – which prepares you to operate in a professional environment. We especially like creative events to be innovative and creative which includes all the marketing material such as creating ‘viral’ marketing events, PR events and photoshoots.

Study time

Study is divided across taught hours, studio and/or work environment time, and independent study. Excellent professional and technical support is available and students are encouraged to experiment and work collaboratively on self-initiated projects. We expect students to spend an average of 40 hours per week on their studies, although it is likely that these hours will vary throughout the academic year.
