The University of the West of Scotland provides both undergraduate and post graduate courses in Events Management with specific modules focusing on Business Events and Conferences Management. With an experienced team of researchers the Events team has worked closely with different industry partners to provide business solutions, training and education.
Scotland is renowned for its globally-recognised events. This acclaim has created a growing need for effective event management in the business, tourism and hospitality sectors.
Our Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes will include elements relating to the development of operational and managerial skills across a range of sectors, as well as project management, legislation and risk management – all essential skills for the professional events manager. A special feature of this course is the close liaison with industry leaders and professional bodies/trade associations in the events industry such as ABPCO.
Modules offer an international focus (giving you the opportunity to apply your skills overseas) and experiential learning activities, where you will be able to see and hear ‘in-practice’ what you have discussed in the classroom.
