Events management is a multi-billion pound global industry which is predicted to grow by more than 10% over the next decade, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Our BA (Hons) International Events Management programme combines residential trips to events destinations, regular visits to high-profile national and international events and venues, specialist guest lectures, and full involvement in organising a wide range of live events on our beautiful Regent’s Park campus.
We take a holistic approach to your professional and personal development, and seek to hone your skills and broaden your involvement in the industry as your studies progress.
Our programme covers many different disciplines from the global events management industry, and offers a practical but academically rigorous approach to undergraduate study.
You will experience a wide range of different events from the world of luxury, fashion, music, sport, international professional associations, corporates, charities, agencies, and many more, with the aim of developing your understanding of the benefits and challenges of organising events in today’s industry.
We provide regular opportunities for you to organise live events, at different stages, covering different roles.
By the end of the programme you will graduate as an accomplished global events manager, ready to lead and succeed in whatever area of the industry interests you most.
This is a 4 year full-time programme.
As part of the programme, you will complete at least one semester of Study Period Abroad where further investigation of the international events management industry takes place, and have the opportunity to complete a 4-6 month full-time international industry work placement (which can be undertaken in London or globally) as part of your degree.
Such placements are conducted with global event management agencies, international events venues, suppliers and tourism organisations, or multi-national organisations or brands, for example.
An increasing number of students from the programme are securing full-time employment post-graduation with organisations they have been employed by as part of their studies at the University.
*Module descriptions will be available shortly.
You will experience a wide variety of teaching methods and approaches including lectures, seminar-based activities, group and individual projects, the organisation of live and assessed events on core events modules, attendance at a selection of UK industry events, live pitches to high-profile organisations, guest lectures from predominant industry personnel, University-based exams, and analysis of many different commercial case studies.
A broad approach to learning and teaching is adopted in order that you experience the many different aspects of the international events industry, and hear from its varied stakeholders, each with a fresh perspective on the industry and its challenges.
You will be assessed using a variety of methods including industry case studies, individual and group-based reports and presentations, live industry pitches, University exams, the compilation of blogs and videos, and through the organisation of charity fundraising events on campus.

Transfer of credits
If you have already participated in degree-level education, you may be able to transfer some of your credits towards a course at Regent's University London. We recognise Advanced Prior Learning (APL), which may make it possible for you to begin your studies at a more advanced level within the programme.
This is at the discretion of Regent's University London.
Any applicant being considered for APL will be required to have equivalent qualifications from another university. A key criterion for the acceptance of APL qualifications will be the similarity of the learning outcomes between the two programmes, so that the exemptions can be matched specifically to particular modules within the Regent's University London undergraduate degree programme.
To apply for transfer of credit, you must provide detailed descriptions (certified English translations where necessary) of any courses taken, and transcripts of relevant grades. Transfer of credit will only be assessed before entry. Please note: all transfer students must complete at least three semesters at Regent's University London, and transfer into the final year of the degree programme is not possible. All credit transfer is subject to a language test in your chosen foreign language(s). Your level of foreign language skills will determine the level at which you can enter the programme.
English is the language of instruction, but it is not a language option. Of the nine languages offered at Regent's, you cannot study your native language. In addition, the programme does not allow students to take more than one language at beginner level.
At registration, if you are a non-beginner language student you will be required to take a diagnostic test in your chosen language. The results of this test will determine which language class you will be placed in.

The Vice-Chancellor’s Excellence Scholarship
Professor Aldwyn Cooper, Vice-Chancellor of Regent’s University London, wishes to recognise and reward three students each year who demonstrate particular commitment to upholding the University’s values and the ability to play an ambassadorial role for the University during their studies.
Regent’s Family Reward
Regent’s offers an intimate style of education, characterised by lots of personal attention. This personalised approach extends beyond our students to their families, with the University welcoming increasing numbers of brothers, sisters and even children of our alumni each year. The University is delighted to offer the Regent’s Family Reward as a thank-you to our alumni for their and their families’ loyalty.
The Filippo Corsini Polo Scholarship
The Regent’s polo team has enjoyed considerable success over recent years, with our novice team winning second place in the Schools and Universities Polo Association competition in 2014. From March 2017, Regent’s will host its own annual invitational tournament.
To support the team’s continuous improvement, from 2017 the University will award two polo scholarships each year to students who show both the polo skills and the leadership acumen to help the team’s development.
The scholarship is named in memory of Regent’s student Prince Filippo Corsini, an accomplished equestrian and showjumper, in recognition of his sporting prowess and exceptional leadership skills.
Prince Filippo, the heir to a noble Florentine family, was in his first year of study for the BA (Hons) International Business at the University when his life was cut short by a tragic accident in 2016. The scholarship celebrates Filippo’s life and the promise he showed, both on and off the field.
Regent’s Vice Chancellor Professor Aldwyn Cooper described Filippo as a young man who ‘Epitomised the type of student we seek to recruit to Regent’s. His application to study, enjoyment of sport and leadership in many fields were outstanding.’
Filippo’s tutor, Samantha Lee, said: ‘He proved not only to have a keen business mind, but was also a motivational and supportive team player and an inspiring leader. Filippo achieved a first-class result in the team-working and leadership event and his team named him Most Valued Player.’
