Start-up support

Start-up week 2 - 9 March

A jam-packed week of intensive skills sessions hosted by experts in a variety of fields from Intellectual Property to Brand Identity & design, plus start-up stories, networking opportunities & competitions!


We support a small number of students on self-employed internships. Each summer the Student Enterprise team provides aspiring entrepreneurs with start-up grant funding and support to maximise their potential by gaining access to funding, support and a network.

Applications for the Enternship Programme will open early 2018.
