You’ll develop skills such as formulating policy and planning for the future, as well as developing your softer skills in the likes of time management, project management, and formal presentations.
You’ll also develop business and marketing skills that relate specifically to the design, management and evaluation of large and small-scale events and festivals with an international focus.
Through lectures, guest speakers and case studies, you’ll develop an advanced understanding of the contemporary issues and key concepts involved in the international festival and event industry.
With our close connections within Edinburgh’s festivals community, and the large number of tourist ventures and operations in or near the city and further afield, you’ll have plenty of options for part-time work and opportunities for employment after graduation.
If starting in January you may have the opportunity to gain some of your own work experience by gaining employment within the sector during Edinburgh’s summer festivals, for example the Festival Fringe, International Festival, or Jazz and Blues Festival.
