Creative Events Management

Semester Study Abroad courses are for students and professionals who wish to spend time abroad, developing their creative skills and gaining credits towards their university degree, but do not necessarily want to spend 2-3 years in another country.

Students are fully integrated with our BA (Hons) students in an exciting, creative University environment.

Creative Events Management is about the creation and organisation of live arts and other events – anything from art exhibitions to theatrical productions, music gigs to multi-artform festivals, dance workshops to fashion shows. In this course you will develop the knowledge, skills and understanding required to make such events succeed. Our aim is to support and enable you to develop as a successful arts manager, able to work at the forefront of the arts and creative industries.

Our Semester Study Abroad Creative Events Management course offers a unique opportunity to work alongside other students studying practical creative subjects at the University. Our students have previously worked alongside Film, Animation, Acting, Fashion, Visual Communications, Fine Art and Illustration BA (Hons) courses. As part of the School of Performance we also have very close links with Acting, Costume and Design for Performance and Make-up for Media and Performance courses.

Portfolios are required from all prospective candidates who wish to do a Semester Study Abroad course at the Arts University. The portfolio’s purpose is to show us how you communicate and translate ideas visually. Your portfolio will be reviewed by the course leader and a panel who will determine the most appropriate year of study in the course for each candidate.

Other types of programmes, such as bespoke courses are also available. For more information or to apply for a course contact us on +44 1202 363824 or email
