Degree success launches Claire's new career in Events Management

"Organising an art exhibition is something I really wanted to achieve during the course so for me it was the best possible ending to my time at the university."

Claire Owen, BA(Hons) Events Management

Exciting times beckon Staffordshire University for Events Management graduate Claire Owen who has celebrated her graduation and the start of her new career this summer.

Claire, who originally enrolled to study Illustration before changing direction in the first year of her course, has since secured a job as a wedding and events co-ordinator in Market Drayton.

Claire, who studied BA(Hons) Event Management, said: "The course was perfect for me. It was really interesting as I didn’t realise how much actually goes in to marketing events and putting them on."

The highlight of the year for Claire was her final year project to put on an art exhibition as part of the Staffordshire Festival of Performing Arts.

Claire added: "Organising an art exhibition is something I really wanted to achieve during the course so for me it was the best possible ending to my time at the university."
