Course Details

Full time (3 day week, with 1 independent study day), 7 months Event Management Diploma with a postgraduate event management work placement.

We have listened to our students and understand that supporting your education in London requires most to have part time employment during the course. To make this as easy as we can, we have structured the course so that the hours are from 10am to 4pm and only requires attendance at lectures three days a week, allowing time for both a part time or evening job and a Post Graduate Course.
