Course: BA (Hons) Event Management

There are few Universities that offer Events Management degree. UCLan is one of them. UCLan offers great support to students and the course leader and tutors are always willing to help. Futures, the Students' Union and the sports centre make the University even more interesting and fun. The friendly environment was one of the main things that attracted me to become a student at UCLan. The University is close to the city centre which is very important and very comfortable (in terms of time).

Seminars are a great way to repeat and show what you have learned. During the seminars I can communicate with lecturers face-to-face and get any questions answered.

For me as an event manager it  is very important to practice my knowledge and get as much experience as possible. Our teachers are always encouraging and give such opportunities to us.

The University has been supporting me before and during my course of study. If I have any questions I can easily find answers and have a great support from my school, the ‘i’, Futures and from tutors too.

For me, making friends was not hard and now I’m meeting more interesting people with whom I hope I will become good friends.

I would advise new students to not be shy and ask about everything. Get involved in different societies, trying everything that UCLan offers, like Futures or the SU. It is worth trying and if you don’t like it you can always find something else.

After graduation, I would like to work as an Event Manager or even open my own company that specialises in events of different kinds. I am also interested in becoming a qualified psychologist.
