The growth of the events sector is driving continual demand for specialist graduates, who not only understand the theory behind business and events managements, but have sound, practical experience.
Hosting events matters, and not simply because of the money that gets spent in the local economy. Major events focus the world’s attention on one location – increasing people’s interest in visiting, studying or investing there.<
Our degree course blends academic practice with the study of core business skills and management concepts, along with a live project. This allows you to develop and apply your knowledge, understanding and expertise – while also identifying specialisms that reflect your interests and abilities.

Studying during COVID-19
Due to national restrictions all universities in England, including ARU, are only able to provide face to face teaching on campus for a limited number of courses. Visit our restrictions page for details.
In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic all our students can choose to either study face to face on campus or online only, and students are able to change their mode of delivery at given dates throughout the trimester.
For on campus teaching, we offer at least four hours of face to face teaching-related contact time per week for our undergraduate full-time programmes, supported by online learning using our established online learning systems. The number of contact hours varies course by course, and you can contact us for further information. The provision offered is subject to change due to the possibility of further Government restrictions, however the University remains committed to delivering face to face teaching and ensuring a COVID-19 secure environment.
In the event that there are further changes to the current restrictions that are in place within the UK due to the pandemic, we may need to move some courses online only at short notice to remain in line with Government guidelines and ensure the continued safety of our students and staff.
