Life is supposed to be fun, but the complexity and planning that go into event management and hospitality, including considering the many risks, make detailed specialist knowledge and experience essential to ensure that the fun remains fun.
The foundation degree, FdA Hospitality and Event Management, builds on learning and experience gained in earlier qualifications and is a natural progression if you want to pursue a senior role in the industry.
It mixes work-based learning with on campus teaching to develop wider skills and knowledge in contexts outside the classroom.
If you are studying full-time you will be expected to arrange suitable work placements during your course to ensure you get the full benefit of the work/academic programme.
For part-time students employed in the hospitality or event management sector, a substantial part of the required coursework will be based on your work context.
Either way, the degree teaches you the fundamentals for any management related career.
