The Events sector is a vibrant segment in the UK and NI economies and one, which makes a significant contribution to job creation. Tourism NI has identified it as a priority area. This three-year programme, validated by Ulster University, offers a wide variety of career opportunities including the hospitality industry, wedding planning, charities, event management companies, music and festival organisations, city councils and the fashion industry. In order to complete the course you will study 12 modules over three years to include Professional & Personal Development, Enterprise Awareness, Events Operations; Marketing for Events, Introduction to Finance & Accounts and Event Management in Action. You will also get the opportunity to study some specialised modules to include Global & Cultural Events, Corporate Events, Legal Issues for Events and Leadership and People Management.

Assessment is by a combination of assignments, examinations and practical organisation of events as well as a project undertaken during work-based learning. Work-based learning requires students to acquire a placement in the vents industry, which will enable them to organise or assist in the organisation of an event. Belfast Met have built up a list of contacts within all major sectors of the event’s industry who have offered placements in the past and are keen to offer placements in the future. The work placement is undertaken in the final semester of year three, which may facilitate students to stay on within the industry with the possibility of gaining full-time employment.
