The Events sector is a vibrant segment in the UK and NI economies and makes a significant contribution to job creation in Northern Ireland. 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.

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 events industry, which will enable them to organise or assist in the organisation of an event. 

Career Opportunities / Progression

Students who complete the course may proceed to the final year of the BSc Hons Leisure and Events Management programme at Ulster University, upon successful completion of the bridging modules, or to other relevant University courses. Alternatively, since this programme has been designed to meet the demands of a major employment growth area, there are opportunities to gain employment within the events industry straight after completion of the programme.
