    Hey,
    I have applied to study events management as a BSc at Lincoln (UK) and I was wondering if after I have completed my degree, where would my qualification be valid? I aspire to live and work abroad and I don't know how much this degree would contribute but as it is an international job I didn't think it would matter so much? Does anybody know places where it is definitely valid or what is have to do for it to be recognised??
    Thank you for any help in advance

    Turn the question around - where do you want to live or work? Then see how well the degree is considered there. All degrees from recognised universities are 'valid' but there may be local differences eg for further study or accreditation with organisations in that country.

    Certainly anywhere in the Bologna System.

    As you've studied events management then I'd recommend looking for work in major cities of Europe. The country itself may not be English-speaking, like Germany or Switzerland, but the job may be English speaking. Do not feel limited just to managing 'events', you can look for work in the general management or a job completely outside of your degree which requires a bachelor.

    Events Management is not a strong academic field at all. I'd say you should be prioritising the practice of events management over anything else.
