If working in a challenging environment where no two days are the same excites you, then this course is a must for you. 

Although many students will come to Oakfields College wanting to study just event management (sounds like such a glamorous career!), a big advantage of studying with us is that you will also study public relations, which is essential if you want to be a successful event manager.

This one-year programme is run by experts who have a wealth of practical experience in this industry. The course will provide you with the skills needed to become a highly regarded public relations practitioner and event manager; focusing on building confidence, understanding the dynamics of working with a diverse group of people and acquiring skills for professional conduct in a business situation.

You will be introduced to the techniques that experienced and professional event organisers continuously use, rely on and are well trained in. The course covers such a diverse range of modules, that upon completion, you can choose careers in areas such as wedding planning, corporate event management, public relations, promotions and sponsorship – to mention just a few.
