Business & Marketing

Events have played a central role in culture and society since time began. Managing events has now become an industry in its own right. This session introduces you to the multidisciplinary nature of event management including marketing, business management and accounting and finance. Working in small groups, you create a new and original music festival based on your musical taste and knowledge of popular music.

Concept Art

See and experience the excellent facilities available at Teesside University. You will learn how to balance traditional drawing techniques alongside 21st century technology, helping you capture your ideas on paper and bringing to life a character of your very own creation to include in your portfolio.


You explore a range of controversial areas of law including law and morality relating to assisted suicide, consent to body modification and a person’s right to autonomy over their own body. We discuss the outdated criminal defence of insanity, as well as covering current issues such as whether COVID-19 measures are justified and whether everyone has the right to a fair trial. No prior knowledge of law is needed!
