Course description

Foundation Year - helping you to achieve more

Including a foundation year as part of your four-year study programme will give you a head start in your academic and professional life. The foundation year offers the chance to strengthen your skills, knowledge and confidence – with extensive support from our expert staff – before you advance to stage one of your honours degree. It could also be beneficial if you are planning a career change and want to get to grips with aspects of subjects which are new to you.

Our degrees with a foundation year are continuous, meaning that you won’t need to apply again once you have successfully completed the first year.

The highlights

  • You'll learn how to stage events and so much more: we also give you the management, leadership and entrepreneurial skills needed to excel in the events industry, a rapidly evolving sector that needs reshaping and rebuilding after the Covid pandemic
  • You'll learn how events, tourism and hospitality overlap to make up the wider 'visitor economy', and work closely with Tourism and Hospitality students - this will broaden your career options
  • You can study abroad for a semester in stage two, and take a placement year before stage three
  • All modules align with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, so you will learn to think about the social and environmental impact of events, not just the financial gains.

Careers

Having learned the latest techniques, processes, and technologies for event management, you'll graduate from this degree as a confident and creative event specialist with strong business acumen. If you want to launch your own business or work for a start-up, you'll have the enterprising attitude and attributes that are needed, including resilience, self-awareness and independent thinking.

Or if you prefer to work for an employer, you'll be well-suited to a range of roles in the event, tourism or hospitality sectors, as well as allied industries such as marketing, PR or HR. You could initially apply for roles such as Conference and Event Co-ordinator, Marketing Executive, Business Development Manager, Communications Co-ordinator, but several years down the line, we think you'll be leading, inspiring and shaping the future of the visitor economy.
