Event students take over University Open Day

News Page 22nd November 2018

Event Management students took the reins at the most recent Open Day to put their learnings into practice.

Students from various year groups of the BA Event Management programme combined to inject some student-led activities into the course and student advice workshop schedule

With live music on campus, guided tours of Waterside and interactive demos from Student Union societies such as Basketball and Le Crosse in the Engine Shed – event students worked alongside the University’s Events team to give a sample of student life to prospective undergraduates.

Claire Leer, Senior Lecturer in Events Management & Tourism, said: “The main purpose was to build a sense of community and belonging to the course. It was a fantastic opportunity to get students from different year groups working together and to develop their learning by putting our teaching into practice.

“We have decided to build upon Saturday’s open day and plan more activities for the first applicant day in February.”
