The Course

The BSc (Hons) Events Management degree at Lincoln aims to help aspiring events professionals to develop their creativity, organizational skills, and practical problem-solving abilities while building a critical understanding of the theory behind successful events.

Events Management at Lincoln is a cross-disciplinary subject which gives students the opportunity to develop an understanding of events in a physical, social and cultural context. The course provides students with opportunities to undertake live projects and work placements to gain practical event experience.

How You Study

In the first year, the course introduces the broad subject areas that feed into the organisation and management of events, including financial communications, advertising, the experience economy and marketing.

The second year focuses more closely on specific events practices, and students can organise and host an assessed event. Students have the opportunity to focus more closely on events themselves, and modules can include Research Methods for Tourism and Events, Managing the Environment for Tourism and Events, and Understanding the Visitor Experience.

At this stage, students have the opportunity to study abroad for two terms at a partner institution. Students who choose to study abroad must pay for any travel, accommodation and general living costs. In the final year, students may write a dissertation or take part in a live consultancy project. Costs relating to studying abroad are highlighted in the Features tab.

Students may also be able to take part in optional study visits throughout the course to events such as exhibitions. Students who select to take the optional third-year module Crisis and Disaster Management can choose to travel to Sri Lanka as part of a study visit.

Studying a Modern Language

This course also includes the option to develop language skills at no extra cost with opportunities to study French, German, Business English, Spanish or Mandarin Chinese.

In the first year of the degree, students will have the opportunity to study visual language, problem-solving and communication techniques, while placing advertising in its socio-historical context. Students can progress to answering advertising briefs, which require a sound grasp of commercial communications and the ability to identify and reach defined audiences. In the final year, students have the chance to refine their portfolio of work, which is a showcase of professional standard advertising campaigns across different communication channels.

Contact Hours and Reading for a Degree

Students on this programme learn from academic staff who are often engaged in world-leading or internationally excellent research or professional practice. Contact time can be in workshops, practical sessions, seminars or lectures and may vary from module to module and from academic year to year. Tutorial sessions and project supervision can take the form of one-to-one engagement or small group sessions. Some courses offer the opportunity to take part in external visits and fieldwork.

It is still the case that students read for a degree and this means that in addition to scheduled contact hours, students are required to engage in independent study. This allows you to read around a subject and to prepare for lectures and seminars through wider reading, or to complete follow up tasks such as assignments or revision. As a general guide, the amount of independent study required by students at the University of Lincoln is that for every hour in class you are expected to spend at least two to three hours in independent study.
