    ‘The Applied Research with Field Course’ is designed around the model of research-informed teaching, with emphasis on learning through problem-solving and self-managed projects. The module serves as an optional continuum to ‘Skills, Analysis and Methods’ module and aims to stimulate development of students’ ability to relate theoretical material to real world case study, making clear links between theory, research methodology, data collection and analysis.
    For the length of the module, students cooperate and work in groups, to gather amount of data sufficient to complete their independent projects. Given the case study destination, students research relevant to their discipline aspects of the destination and decide on subject-specific problem to be investigated using primary research. In the next stage, students design research framework focusing on research question, suitable methodology and sampling. In the process, the encouragement is given to the use of mixed methodologies (interviews, surveys, audits, participant observation and visual methodologies) to enable students to practice in field a range of tools and develop skills of independent researcher. During the field course, students are expected to conform to the professional code of conduct.
    Additionally, the module aims to create group cohesion and the sense of course belonging, which is fundamental to improving retention rates as well as overall levels of student satisfaction.
    The aim of the module is to provide students with an opportunity to design research project and practice research skills in an unfamiliar environment, via residential field course. This serves as a practical underpinning for the dissertation module and ability to verify and address student’s individual strengths and weaknesses as a researcher.

    ‘Visitor Attraction Management’ considers visitor attractions from the perspective of the tourism industry – as a product that is managed and marketed to tourists to meet visitor expectations and maximise visitor satisfaction while ensuring financial security in a dynamic external environment.
    The module covers visitor attractions in the commercial, pubic and not for profit sectors. In order to understand the operation of these attractions, consideration to the main management functions including finance, marketing, visitor experience management, facilities management, interpretation and education is given. Specific issues related to the management of sensitive sites (such as sacred sites and dark heritage sites) are considered. Ethical issues in the management of visitor attractions are dealt with in areas such as the handling of live collections (zoos and aquaria), the treatment of human remains, the provenance of collections, restitution and repatriation.
    Whatever the attraction (theme park, museum, temple or battlefield) - they all need to maintain the appropriate balance of visitor engagement, enjoyment, excitement and enlightenment. In addition, they need to continually adapt to the dynamic social, economic and political environment in which they operate. To that end, the module emphasises the need for organisations to think ahead strategically and develop plans to build on their strengths and exploit the opportunities in the wider environment in order to retain and improve their market position.
    The module aims to give students the analytical skills to evaluate a visitor attraction and apply management principles to devise strategic options for organisations that will address internal and external challenges.

What our students say

"What I enjoy most about the events management course is how multifaceted it is. By this I mean that it isn’t about the managing of an event alone. The course offers many aspects involving marketing, law, consultancy and human resources. For individuals who aren’t sure about what route to take within the events industry after graduating, the many different aspects the course offers can help students gain little insight into each of the paths that are involved with events management and can therefore help narrow down the pathway someone may be inspired to take." Wiebke Redinger

After the course

A degree in events management can help you enter a wide range of careers. Many of our graduates have found employment with employers such as BlueGlass Interactive, C Squared, Chillisauce, Diageo, Heart Productions, TripAdvisor and Upper Street Events.

With the support provided at London Met – including the University’s business incubator Accelerator – many have also gone on to set up their own businesses or undertake postgraduate study.

What is a degree with foundation year?

This is a four-year degree course with a built-in foundation year (Year 0). It's the perfect route into university if you don't meet the necessary entry requirements for the standard undergraduate degree.

UK/EU applicants for September full-time entry must apply via UCAS unless specified otherwise.

Applicants for September part-time entry should apply direct to the University using the apply online button.

Non-EU applicants looking to study part-time should apply direct to the University. If you require a Tier 4 (General) student visa, please be aware that you will not be able to study as a part-time student at undergraduate level.

When to apply

The University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) accepts applications for full-time courses starting in September from one year before the start of the course. Our UCAS institution code is L68.

If you will be applying direct to the University you are advised to apply as early as possible as we will only be able to consider your application if there are places available on the course.
