We’ll make a decision on your application based on the information in your UCAS application. You won’t need to attend an interview.
You’ll use your exceptional communication skills to show your initiative and to demonstrate your experience and passion for organising events and your natural ability and desire to ‘make things happen’.
Your personal statement is an opportunity to show us your interest in the course and to show us your potential.
What we’re looking for
We look for students who display a commitment to a career in events management and applicants who can talk to us passionately about their interest in the arts. You’ll need initiative, critical ability, creativity, problem solving abilities and to be a strong team player. Students need to be self motivated, resilient and organised with an eye for detail.
You will also need to be a good ‘all rounder’, have very strong communication skills and relish a challenge. A good sense of ‘what works’ in the arts is desirable, as is an understanding of the range of arts roles that exist – from socially inclusive practice to commercially viable projects.
We are looking for people with a broad range of arts interests from fashion to music, visual arts to circus.
You can take a look at our entry requirements here. Your qualifications should include a relevant creative subject and we accept a wide range of Level Three qualifications.
If you are taking non-standard qualifications, we may request a portfolio or sample of your work before we make a decision about your application. If we do ask you to submit an electronic portfolio, then please send us details of events you have been involved in, examples of any written work, such as reviews of creative events, and any marketing materials that you may have produced (flyers, websites, blogs, photographs, etc).
If you are successful, we’ll invite you to attend an Applicant Day. These are designed exclusively for undergraduate applicants holding offers at AUB. You’ll have the opportunity to find out more about the course, meet staff and have a tour of the AUB campus.
Applicant Days take place from January to April, when we make an offer, we’ll invite you to an Applicant Day and send you details.
If you are not in the UK we may invite you to a Skype chat with a member of the academic course team, if we need more information before making a decision.
