Event Management Masters in the UK. 17 Courses.




So you want to get in to a career where you could:
manage a celebrity,
or work where you can watch and meet some celebrities,
or as a lover of cricket you are inspired by IPL,
or as a movie buff you are awed by the glamour of Bollywood, Filmfare, IIFA,
or well, you simply wish to work with top event management companies like Wizcraft, Percept D Mark, IMG Event Management and such others,
or you wish to plan weddings, organize parties, manage talent hunt and reality shows, organize fashion shows, work around sports events, plan corporate events and conferences or even run your own event management firm

The above are some reasons we get when students discuss their interests in studying event management.

We get these quite a bit:
"Should I study event management in India or can I study abroad?"
"Will studying event management abroad add value?"
"Where all can I work after studying event management?"
"Are there enough event management jobs when I will return to India?"
several more.....

A large number of Indian students are moving towards unorthodox course choices since they can stay closer to their interest areas while they can earn money, make a living and develop a good career for the future. While there are good Institutions in India like NIEM (National Institute of Event Management) in Mumbai, Pune and Ahmedabad, you may also wish to consider to study in UK for a one year Masters in Event Management at some top UK Universities.

Suggestion:
Do not go by the UK University Ranking System for selecting an event management programme. Focus on the content. Event Management is also a niche area of study and only thinking about top universities is not enough. Here are some factors that you must strongly consider while selecting your UK University to study events management:


  1. Course Content: Is the course content suitable for your immediate career interests (after the course) or your long-term career interests? 
  2. Industry Links: Is that UK University associated with any popular companies or have their students in the past worked with top event management companies?
  3. Internship: Are internships available as a part of the event management programme? Or is there a work placement after the course?
  4. Location: Location of the University sometimes can be the key too. However, the priority should be the course content and industry links of the university
  5. Budget: Of course this is important. Ask your parents! Remember - living in a smaller city will reduce your expense by about GBP 2000 during the year. This factor may make the location of the University very important

To apply to all Universities listed, connect with ILW for applications, university selection, help with essay editing, securing admission, obtaining available scholarships, student visa guidance, meeting other students and much more. ILW has enjoyed assisting students applying to the Universities above. Nearly all students have received some scholarships while applying to event management programmes in UK through ILW
