Our Events Management (including foundation year) BA (Hons) degree is a four-year course with a built-in foundation year (Year 0) – it’s the perfect start to your university education if you can’t meet the entry requirements or don't have the qualifications you need to start a standard undergraduate degree.
London is home to some of the greatest events in the world, making it an excellent place to develop your career in events management.
Your foundation year will allow you to develop key business knowledge, providing an excellent basis for your subsequent years of study where you’ll have the opportunity to explore events in more depth – including arts, fashion, music and corporate events.
You will share your foundation year with students on other business-related foundation year courses to enable you to share ideas and insights with fellow London Met students.
During your subsequent years of study you will study the same core course content and have access to the same optional modules as students on our three-year Events Management BA (Hons) degree.
You’ll be taught by events management experts and have the opportunity to network with leading industry figures.
Should you decide during your foundation year that you’d like to specialise in a different area of business, there is also some flexibility to allow you to do this.
You'll graduate with a full undergraduate degree with the same title and award as those who studied the traditional three-year course.
Your assessments will include group work, coursework, presentations, portfolios, exams and a dissertation in your final year.
Our events management course is recognised by the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO), the UK’s leading professional body for conference and event organisation.
London Met is also a member of the Association of Events Management Education.

"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
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.
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.
