About the course

Access indicative course structure

This is a fixed programme of study for students who require a greater choice and specialisation within their course. It enables you to study subject areas not offered by our single honours degrees and gives you the possibility of creating a programme to meet your individual needs.


Studying Business as part of your course allows you to gain a firm understanding of the role of business in society and develop knowledge of the main functional areas; accounting, marketing and human resources through a creative mix of academic study, skills development and practical training. This can lead to a wide range of careers, but also allows focus on one functional area for more specific career prospects.

Event Management

Choosing to study Event Management as part of your course will give you the skills, knowledge and expertise necessary to enter a career in event management. You will be able to work on a live project, giving you hands-on experience, and with guest speakers and field trips, you will develop an understanding of how to manage events within different areas, such as sports, tourism, arts and theatre.

Why choose this course?

  • Dive straight into understanding how business operates.
  • Benefit from our links with local industry and commerce.
  • Develop the necessary skills for events management by working on your own live project.
  • Take the opportunity to study abroad as part of your course, or undertake a 12-month work placement.
