Next move… if you're keen to get into events

Should I get a degree at university or stay at college for an HND in hospitality management and then take a training course to get into events?
In deciding how to further your education and gain more qualifications you need to think about your learning style. Some people enjoy the more academic approach of university, while others do better through more practical training programmes with an employer. If you have a clear idea of the kind of business you would like to work in, it may be worthwhile for you to get in touch with some key employers and find out what they offer in terms of training. They will also be able to give you an idea of the level of education they prefer for entrants to management training schemes. If you're unsure about committing to a lengthy university programme at this stage, it's worth remembering that many employers will support you in getting a degree as part of their training programme.
