Celebrating EED Year in Industry Students

The School of Music and Fine Art’s  Event & Experience Design BA programme has two students taking the Year in Industry during the academic year 2015/16, before they return to take their final year on this innovative programme.

This is particularly exciting as these are our first BA Event & Experience Design students to do this and both achieved highly competitive placements.

Leah Stewart has been accepted on a national paid internship scheme at L’Oreal and will work on visual merchandising, design and branding, important elements within our course. For more information: http://www.loreal.com/careers/students—graduates/internships

Kirsten Short underwent a rigorous recruitment process at Hels Angels in Covent Garden, London, to achieve a paid internship, beating competition from students on the event management courses at Sheffield Hallam and Greenwich.  For more information: http://www.helsangels.net/

“These are two fabulous opportunities for our students to experience two completely different high-level work environments in London, which will provide them with contacts for their future employability and a deep understanding of the events and marketing industries. They will return to their studies with a wealth of knowledge,” says Peter Hatton, Director of Events &Experience Design.
