									      GRADUATE CERTIFICATE/DIPLOMA EVENTS MANAGEMENT

                    London College of Communication
                      University of the Arts London
                       Elephant & Castle. SE1 6SB



Who is this course for?
The Graduate Certificate in Events Management is for individuals who would
like an intensive, vocationally focused experience that will build their
knowledge, experience and skills in events management and develop their
critical and analytical abilities. These courses are also designed for students
who already have a first degree and wish to progress to a post-graduate
course but need a bridging programme to build confidence and skills, or
alternatively wish to pursue a more specialist or intensive skills course in an
area related to their first degree.

The Diploma course extends and applies these studies through the research
methods unit and the development of a major practical project in the
student’s specialist area, which they will have proposed, researched and
brought to a conclusion. It provides students with a strong portfolio with
which to set out on a particular career and can also serve as excellent
preparation for Master’s level study.

What will you study on these courses?
Students studying for the Certificate in Events Management will study 60
credits over a 15 week period. This is a full-time course and is made up of
two compulsory core units:

      Event Planning (20 credits)
      Event Marketing & Enterprise (20 credits)

Students also have to study two electives. In 2008 we intend to run the two
most popular units from the following list.
         Creating contemporary events (corporate, themed and sporting)
           (10 credits)1
         Learning in the Workplace (10 credits)
         Developing a business website (10 credits)
         Small & Medium Sized Enterprise Finance (10 credits)

Students studying for the Diploma in Events Management will study the
same 60 credits as those working towards the Certificate. The difference is
that these students will take a course in Research Methods during June &
early July. This will be made up of taught face to face classes and tutorials
with a supervisor to develop a research project. Over the summer students
will be expected to complete a proposal, and during the autumn this will be
developed into a final project. The credit weighting of these units are:

         Project Proposal: Research Methods (20 credits)
         Research in Practice (project) (40 credits)

Students must pass the 60 credits on the Graduate Certificate course before
progressing onto the research methods unit and project.

How will you be assessed?
These units will be assessed via portfolio, essays, event plans, presentations
and reflective reports. Diploma students will be required to prepare a
proposal and develop a 6-8,000 word project.

Duration of course
The full-time Graduate Certificate will run over 15 weeks and the Diploma
over 30 weeks. Classes will be scheduled over two days each week 2.
Students are also expected to undertake self-directed study, and to make
independent visits during the rest of the week as this is a full-time course. In
2008 we will only be running the course full-time.

Where will you study?
All teaching will take place at the London College of Communication that is
located at Elephant & Castle. This is a hub for buses, and there is a tube, and
overland train service. Further information and maps can be found at
http://www.lcc.arts.ac.uk/lcc_location.htm

Students will also be expected to take part in day trips to attractions and
venues throughout Greater London on these days as part of their teaching
and their own self directed visits during the rest of the week.
