About

To meet the educational and professional needs of each student, the programme offers three awards and exit points: Postgraduate Certificate; Postgraduate Diploma and MSc in Events Project Management at Cardiff Metropolitan University.  Learning and teaching strategies are designed to promote active engagement of the student with the subject area and reflect the strong vocational emphasis of the awards. 

Distinguishing features of the programme include:

The Industry Project Management module, which involves students undertaking a live consultancy project as a group.  In addition, students will have the opportunity to gain an additional professionally accredited award (Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM), accredited by the Project Management Institute) as part of this module.

An optional Internship module, which will enhance students’ employability.

An option for the final project is an Individual Consultancy Project, which gives students an opportunity to engage with an industry practitioner.

Students also have the opportunity to pursue a language module as an elective, potentially enhancing their employability.

Students can also engage with the opportunity to achieve additional professional certificates, e.g. Wine and Spirit Educational Trust, First Aid and Royal Society for Public Health Food Hygiene Awards, as these professional certificates provide added value and can enhance student CVs. 

Employability & Careers:

All students undertake a live consultancy project through the Industry Project Management module, which provides an opportunity to engage with employers in the industry.  As part of this module, they have the opportunity to gain an accredited qualification from the Project Management Institute.

Student have the option to undertake the Internship module.  The duration of this (unpaid) internship is either for a minimum of 20 days, which will normally be undertaken during term-time one day a week throughout semester one and semester two or in blocks of time during the semester breaks.

Alternatively, the students can undertake an internship (paid or unpaid) for the duration of 10-12 weeks (usually engaging in a full time role in an organisation) and this will normally be completed during semester three which would mean that the engagement with the final project would be deferred until September when the internship is completed and 120 credits are awarded.

Students undertake operational, supervisory and if possible, management tasks and duties within the organisation;  During their internship students are expected to follow the same work pattern as other employees in the organisation and to perform routine work consistent with that which they aspire to on successful completion of their programme of study.  They will also undertake a work based project tailored to meet the needs of the organisation.  Students can opt for an individual consultancy project as their final project.
