Course Overview

Our Event Technology degree is the perfect choice for aspiring sound, video and lighting technicians. The course is focused on developing a range of technical skills required within the live events industry, while simultaneously allowing you to develop your own areas of specialism. Throughout your study, you will receive expert tuition and practical experience in the areas of audio engineering, lighting technology and video systems whilst also looking to understand how these systems will evolve in the coming years. Further modules in event design and live events management add to your professional skillset. 

As an Event Technology student you will study directly alongside musicians and songwriters. This unique environment provides regular opportunities to hone your skills through hands-on involvement in professional shows, concerts and events.  

In order to fully develop both technical and creative skill, Nexus ICA has built strong links with the Event Technology industry and have designed this course in partnership with SFL Group—one of the UK’s leading events solutions companies. This collaboration gives you access to the latest technology as well as training opportunities in real-world learning environments. When combined with the strong Biblical discipleship ethos that exists at Nexus ICA, the result is that you will be better equipped within your career, church and beyond. 

A vibrant, faith-filled community

Nexus ICA is committed to the education of the whole person, and a strong sense of community is an integral part of what we do. There are regular opportunities to spend time together as a whole school, and staff and students come together weekly in order to socialise, pray and worship together. 

It is a key part of our educational ethos that teaching best takes place in smaller groups. Our staff-to-student ratio allows us to adopt a unique approach, where staff have the time to work alongside each student and create an experience that is tailored to them. 

There are many opportunities throughout the duration of the course to get involved in a variety of aspects of life here at Nexus ICA. Students are encouraged to contribute to a wide range of causes and events during their time here, creating a diverse learning experience that will enrich many aspects of your life. 

Committed to your career

There is a huge demand for skilled sound, video and lighting technicians in the events industry. Through our partnership with SFL Group, the Event Technology degree can be the springboard between you and an incredibly rewarding and long-lasting career. 

The course is designed to develop the many employability skills that enable people to thrive within their careers. Beyond your technical skill, you will leave Nexus ICA with radically improved communication and interpersonal skills, work ethic and time management—the attributes that, time and time again, companies say are the most valuable within their employees. 

If you aspire to become a professional sound, lighting or video technician then our BA (Hons) in Event Technology can help turn these dreams into a reality.
