With the highest number of founders of any university in the UK, we’re excited to offer an entirely new programme supporting our entrepreneurial students and graduates.
Over the course of the year, you'll be invited to get involved with our new seven-part programme – welcoming a range of entrepreneurs, start-ups, and partners to share their expertise and insights with you, covering all aspects of building a business, including:
3. Leaning business (covering commercial and situational awareness)
4. Market research
The new Founder's Programme will offer tailored guidance and advice for enterprising students
and graduates who have their own start-up ideas, while events and workshops will allow you to network and connect with peers, alumni, industry leaders and business founders.
It'll launch soon after Global Entrepreneurship Week, which takes place in November.
We'll continue to have dedicated co-working space available on campus too – an opportunity to work on your business idea while collaborating and sharing ideas with peers.
We regularly hold live events, webinars, masterclasses and skills sessions – often with the help of industry experts, including our alumni – for the benefit of students and new graduates.
Our ‘Conversations with’ events offer an opportunity to connect current students with recent and relatable alumni, sharing their journeys, insights, and expertise.
Employers will be involved in our workshops and will be invited to hold stand-alone events, both digitally and on-campus. Where possible, employers will be integrated into the curriculum to give you the best chance of connecting with them.
