How you'll learn

Teaching is based on a series of lectures and workshops, typically breaking off into smaller seminar groups to discuss and debate a particular theme or subject area. We aim to discuss current issues in event management and invite people, currently working in the events industry, to share their experiences and views, in particular during our annual guest lecture week.

  • Engage directly with companies such as the Ricoh Arena, Coventry Blaze, the British Council and Bosch*. Previous students have had the opportunity to organise and attend real-life events, experiencing each stage and progress from the bidding process, design and costing to logistics, marketing, implementation and feedback with the client.
  • Seek to collaborate with the Students’ Union to promote and manage events on behalf of its many clubs and societies.
  • Take advantage of links with local, national and international event management companies, such as Eventsforce, Fargo and N200, who have previously provided opportunities for direct work experience, both paid and voluntary*.
  • Access a range of industry visits and fieldtrips*, which has previously included visits to well-known event venues and talks from events professionals at the Echo Arena, Cavern Club and St. Georges Hall in Liverpool, and Aviva Stadium and Croke Park in Dublin.

Teaching contact hours

The number of full-time contact hours may vary from semester to semester, however, on average, it is likely to be around 12 contact hours per week in the first and second year dropping to around 8 contact hours per week in the third and final year as you become a more independent learner. The contact hours may be made up of a combination of face-to-face teaching, individual and group tutorials, and online classes and tutorials.

Additionally, you will be expected to undertake significant self-directed study of approximately 12 hours each week, depending on the demands of individual modules.

As an innovative and enterprising institution, the University may seek to utilise emerging technologies within the student experience. For all courses (whether on-campus, blended, or distance learning), the University may deliver certain contact hours and assessments via online technologies and methods.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are prepared for courses due to start in or after the 2022/2023 academic year to be delivered in a variety of forms. The form of delivery will be determined in accordance with Government and Public Health guidance. Whether on campus or online, our key priority is staff and student safety.


Assessment

This course will be assessed using a variety of methods which will vary depending upon the module.

Assessment methods include:

  • Formal examinations
  • Coursework
  • Reports
  • Group work
  • Presentations

The Coventry University Group assessment strategy ensures that our courses are fairly assessed and allows us to monitor student progression towards achieving the intended learning outcomes.


International experience opportunities

We fully appreciate that our students need a global outlook and throughout the course we aim to expose you to the events industry in different countries and cultures. We currently have several global partners focusing on the events industry in the United States, Brazil, Russia, Europe, Dubai, Qatar, China and Australia. In the past, these links have opened exciting opportunities for previous students to volunteer abroad*; the British Council has taken students to conferences in Dubai, Miami and Cape Town in recent years, while other students have visited Qatar, Berlin and Washington DC to provide support at high profile conferences*.

We are looking to develop Online International Learning (OIL) projects, which aim to provide students with the opportunity to work with international students on projects together. In the past, students have worked alongside EU students as part of a week-long case study in Groningen (Holland). Alongside this, our modules consider international perspectives, through relevant case studies, and our module International Event Management builds on this with a direct focus on managing international events.

I was able to make some great contacts and find out more about work opportunities. I have since signed up to work at the BodyPower Expo and am in the works of applying for a job at Grenade, both opportunities I wouldn’t have if I hadn’t come to guest lecture week. I also went to a talk about drugs and events, which is what my dissertation is based on, it was really interesting and the guest speaker was able to recommend some good resources for my dissertation.
