We recommend that BA (Hons) Event Management students bring a laptop or iPad device with wireless capabilities in with them to lessons for in-class research and other tasks. Event Management students are also required to produce and promote at least one assessed event of their own design during BA Y2 or BA Y3, which can incur additional costs.
