Our Events and Tourism team work closely with organisations and businesses ensure students learn both event management theory, as well as getting involved in ‘live’ events which take place throughout the degree. The networks and connections students make are priceless and many students have gone on to employment as a result of work experience. Many of our students particularly enjoy our involvement with festivals.
