What Qualifications Or Experience Do I Need?

Last updated August 9th, 2019

First up, don’t worry!

Event Management is not an academic subject like law or history so we don’t require super high grades to get you onto the course.

Here at Event Academy we want to make our courses as accessible as possible for a wide range of students.

We teach vocational skills, practical skills and methods that you can apply directly.

What this means is that whether you are going for a job will make your CV stand-out, or just want to hit the ground running when you start your first job, these courses will enable you to do just that.

Our entry requirements are used as guidelines to decide whether the course that you have applied for is best suited for you.

That being said, we are flexible with qualifications depending on what experience you may have had.

If you are applying or planning to apply to our Foundation Certificate in Event Management for Marketing and Communications, or our part-time or intensive Diploma course, you should have:

2 A-levels and 5 GCSE’s (including English and Maths) or equivalent

International Baccalaureate (equivalent NQF level 3 or above)


Experience working within the events or marketing industry

Alternative professional experience within a business environment

However, in exceptional cases, we will consider other qualifications and experience – with every application, our admissions team will speak to you and determine whether the course is correct for you.

This will vary depending on whether you have applied for the Foundation Certificate course, Part-time or Intensive Diploma courses.

Got a quick question you need answered? We are here on Live Chat ready to help.

The same general guidelines follow for the Degree Alternative course – this course follows through from Level 3, to Level 4, all the way through to Level 7.

If you are planning to apply for the Postgraduate Diploma in Event Management and Marketing and Communications, our entry requirements are as follows:

A general Bachelor’s Degree

A relevant higher BTEC National Diploma

An International Baccalaureate (equivalent to NQF level 3 and above)

If you do not have ant of the above qualifications, you should be either:

Already working in the event or marketing industry with at least one year’s relevant industry experience

Have at least two years alternative professional experience within a business environment

However, there are cases in which we will consider other qualifications and experience.

We are always on hand to answer any questions you might have so always have a chat with us if you are unsure!
