London Metropolitan University

Course Introduction

**Why study this course?**

Our Events Management (including foundation year) BA (Hons) degree is a four-year course with a built-in foundation year (Year 0) – it’s the perfect start to your university education if you can’t meet the entry requirements or don't have the qualifications you need to start a standard undergraduate degree.

London is home to some of the greatest events in the world, making it an excellent place to develop your career in events management.

**More about the course**

Your foundation year will allow you to develop key business knowledge, providing an excellent basis for your subsequent years of study where you’ll have the opportunity to explore events in more depth – including arts, fashion, music and corporate events.

You will share your foundation year with students on other business-related foundation year courses to enable you to share ideas and insights with fellow London Met students.

During your subsequent years of study you will study the same core course content and have access to the same optional modules as students on our three-year Events Management BA (Hons) degree.

You’ll be taught by events management experts and have the opportunity to network with leading industry figures.

Should you decide during your foundation year that you’d like to specialise in a different area of business, there is also some flexibility to allow you to do this.

You'll graduate with a full undergraduate degree with the same title and award as those who studied the traditional three-year course.
