About our Event Management Course

Bring your vision to life and learn to create unforgettable events with your organisational skills and creativity. Our Event Management Course gives you all the knowledge you need to create beautiful, well-executed events.

How to study online?

The Event Management Course is delivered online and consists of 12 modules and 12 assignments. The course is designed to be self-paced. Students enrolled in the course are provided with 12 months to complete it. Extensions can be purchased if extra time is required.

The modules are designed to be read sequentially and will help build your knowledge to enable you to plan, design, and manage events.

There are exercises at the end of each module which require you to complete various tasks in real-life scenarios related to event management. This participation and interaction will build confidence and help you develop your professional event management skills.

Each student will be given the same event management tasks that will require them to prepare event budgets, manage important documents such as timelines and contracts, gather vendor quotes, plan food and beverage service, conduct a venue site visit, plan seating arrangements, get creative with event d├ęcor, and explore event design.

Each assignment throughout our course will be hypothetical with the intention to set you up for success in the real world of events.

Experience the event management process from start to finish and learn how to turn your ideas into reality while gaining more knowledge and skills.

Getting Started

When you enrol, you will receive a username and password that enables you to log onto our secure student site. From there, you can download your first module, which you could liken to a digital textbook as it contains all the information you will need to complete assignment one. Each module is approximately 90 pages in length and is full of detailed information delivered in an approachable format that breaks down concepts to make them easy to understand. The concepts are further explained by way of images and examples.

Once you have completed your assignment (some are just theoretical, but others combine theory and practical tasks) you then upload this onto our site for your tutor to mark. The tutors will give you a grade (out of 10) and a personalised evaluation of your work as well as ideas to help nurture and improve your knowledge each step of the way.

What makes The Institute for Event Management so unique is that throughout our course, you have access to the safety net and guidance of the team here at Student Support, who you can contact 24/7.

You also have direct contact with your personal tutor who guides you closely through each step of the course, offering tailored constructive criticism on your submitted work. If you ever have any questions regarding the course content or assignments, all you need to do is send your tutor a quick message and they will reply with an answer as soon as they can.

With this close tutor mentorship, you will feel like your tutor is in the same room as you, all while studying from the comfort of your own home. Study when you like, wherever you like, and at your own pace.

The tutors who work for us are not just teachers, they are experienced working professionals in the events industry. By drawing on their knowledge, you will gain a competitive edge that will help you realise your true potential as an Events Manager.
