Students and Graduates
Develop Your Enterprising Mind
We are a support service open to every student and graduate . We can help you while you’re on your course to use your learning in a meaningful and practical way to reach your career goals. We achieve this by giving you unlimited access to a host of resources including skills workshops, mentoring, grants, facilities and networks to meet all your needs.
Our interactive workshops are an ideal starting point if you’re interested in business, self-employment or social & community enterprise or if you want to develop employment, interpersonal and leadership skills to help you apply for a graduate job.
We take you through the process of identifying, researching and pursuing an opportunity.
Mentoring and Coaching
Our mentoring and coaching service can support you on your enterprise journey, especially if you are working on your own and have no prior experience. We work at your pace and you can meet us as many times as you need. We can even find you a coaching buddy so you can help each other along the way as friends.
Entrepreneurship Awards & Funding
Want to know what grants and support is out there? We have got our own grants and info on all resources you need.
Would you like to work for yourself but you need financial support to get your idea off the ground? The Student Entrepreneurship Award is given out once annually through a competitive process giving you the chance to win up to £1000.
Our competitions and events are a great chance for you to enhance your communication, team working, problem-solving and project management skills in a fun way that will also recognise and reward your abilities. We run numerous competitions both across the University and between universities.
Social & Community Enterprise
Enterprise is not just about business. It’s also about applying yourself in the community on a course project or during a placement. By engaging with us you can boost your chances of making an impact in these and other situations.
It’s about coming up with fresh ideas for new services, products or activities and how things could be done better. We have a strong track record of supporting voluntary organisations, charities, and community projects.
