    Course content extremely easy. Nowhere near as challenging as I thought it would be. I don’t think that the Events Management part of the course goes in depth enough. It’s more like an overview. I definitely do no think it is worth the money I am spending on it. Disappinted. I have had no need to discuss anything with my tutor due to this reasoning. It’s nothing I couldn’t work out for myself

    Easy repayments and no student load required. I also could do it in my own time and not feel pressured having to attend a class each week when working full time and having children.

    Pretty cool and straightforward, will definitely keep doing the course. Received the paperwork folder and it’s been really helpful.

    I have chosen to study Event Management as I would like to be able to plan pop-up events, festivals and other corporate events like conferences and trade shows. The assignments and projects are great as I am able to apply what I am learning to ‘real life’ event briefs. Sometimes I forget I am not working on a real event, they are so realistic.
