Events, Marketing and Tourism

There is no better time to pursue a career in events or tourism. The events industry is growing rapidly and plays an increasingly crucial role in both business and leisure, while Suffolk is one of the country’s most popular holiday destinations. Tourism here is worth almost £2 billion.

We offer smaller class sizes than elsewhere, more personal support, inspiring modules, and a healthy dose of fun. All our most recent graduates were in work or study six months after graduation. We work closely with organisations and businesses to get you involved in ‘live’ events rather than simulations, and we start from the very beginning of your degree. The networks and connections you make are priceless.

Our courses also carry a range of accreditation, including your Accredited Personal Licence (APLH). Where better to study events and tourism?
