BA (Hons) coursesApplicant Guide

Course Overview

Your application is an opportunity for you to demonstrate to us your self-motivation and commitment to events management.

You will 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’.

This course does not expect you to bring a portfolio of work to interview as it is an events management course. Instead we will make a decision on your application based on the information in your UCAS application . You will be invited to an Applicant Day; these are designed exclusively for undergraduate applicants holding offers at AUB. The event will give you the opportunity to find out more about the course, meet staff and have a tour of  the AUB campus.

Applicant Days take place in March and April and Admissions will send you an invitation nearer the time so you can confirm attendance. The invitation will also provide further details including an agenda for the day.

What we look 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 will 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’ not afraid of a challenge and to have very strong communication skills. 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.
