    Event Management

    Martin has a great reputation and allows me the flexibility to study from home. I love the teachers. I think the staff are knowledgeable and even though I study online they are really helpful and supportive. When I graduate, I'll be ready for a job in the events industry - hopefully working in music events and internationally!

    Diploma of Event Management

    I knew that Martin would prepare me for a career in Events. Work experience was a great help in understanding how things are run and probably the most rewarding part of the course. I currently work as an Event and Marketing Coordinator at the Sherrin Group. My role involves coordinating corporate social events, internal events and my biggest task is the annual Sherrin Riverfire Charity Gala Dinner. I am also in the process of starting to run my own events on the side.
