Study Live Events, Visual Design and Stage Management at the University of Bolton, No.1 in the North West for the past three years in Student Satisfaction in the Complete University Guide and No.2 in Teaching Quality in the Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020.
Results are finally in, and everyone is thinking about where they are going to university, or maybe asking if university is right for them. And you know what? It’s the perfect time. A lot of people may be talking about pandemics and lockdowns and recessions, but you have an amazing opportunity right now.
Because it’s all a bit crazy out there, there has never been a better time to study and enhance your knowledge and skill set. Work towards employment, which you’ll be ready for in a few years time, and skip all the drama and stress of a slow market that exists today. For postgraduates, it’s even a good time to think about going back to higher education and growing your skills and qualifications.
Why study Live Events, Visual Design and Stage Management?
Live events, from theatre productions to music concerts and conferences, are a bit like a dance. There’s a lot of movement, things need to be in the right places and all the cues need to go off at the right time, or it quickly becomes a disorganised mess.
The fact that it’s live also means that there’s no margin for error, and mistakes or problems need to be solved in real time. That’s a challenge and success requires the training and knowledge to organise and bring to life what is basically a complex project. So if you see yourself working behind the Scenes at Glastonbury, this is the degree for you.
In association with the famous Backstage Academy, courses in Live Events, Visual Design and Stage Management at the University of Bolton are designed to prepare you for all of these challenges. And during the pandemic, students of this field also have the opportunity to help innovate new methods to plan and operate live events in a safe and effective way.
So the million dollar question, why study at the University of Bolton?
Simple. Our students are some of the happiest in the country because at Bolton we are proud to put our students and their needs first. Not forgetting the incredible scene in Greater Manchester and our brilliant student union, students love to learn at Bolton because we teach hands-on courses designed to build you a career that you’ll enjoy.
