Teaching and Assessment

How you will learn

You can expect 12 hours per week of scheduled classes including lectures, seminars and workshops and you will need to complete independent study outside of scheduled classes.

This course is taught through small, interactive workshops in classes of up to 30 students. This creates a close, friendly and supportive environment for your studies and helps you to develop a wide range of soft skills such as teamwork, communication and time management. You will also be assigned an Academic Advisor who will act as your personal tutor and support you throughout your degree.

You will have opportunities to work with organisations on current commercial and business problems and projects. These experiences will provide the basis for some assessments and enable you to apply your learning in authentic commercial situations.

For your final year live event you may work with tutors in smaller groups of 6-8 to deliver an event for a client.

Assessments

You will be assessed through a range of assignments. You may be asked to write event proposals or operational plans, design social and multimedia tools or websites, plan live events, and to deliver PowerPoint pitches and presentations. You will plan two assessed live events during your course.

Graduate
“I knew selecting Chichester was right for me. The classes were small; you got to know your classmates and it proved a great learning environment. Running my own event in the third year gave me valuable hands on experience that I wouldn’t have got from writing a dissertation.”

The Course

What you will study

You will study a selection of core and optional modules in each year. Each module is worth a number of credits and is delivered differently depending on its content and focus of study.

Your first and second year will give you the grounding necessary to deliver a ‘live’ event for a client in years two and three of the degree. You can organise an event as your final year project or you may choose to write a thesis. If you choose to write a thesis you will be assigned a personal project supervisor to support you.

This list is indicative and subject to change.
