Enterprise Events, Workshops and Opportunities

Whether you're thinking of starting up a business, going self-employed or simply have an interest in entrepreneurship, we have opportunities throughout the year to develop key enterprise skills.


Enterprise Experience Weekends 

Interested in developing your enterprise skill set? The Enterprise Experience Weekend is an interactive, fast-paced event which will challenge your thinking and leave you with the basic understanding of an entrepreneurial mindset. It brings together students and graduates from across campus to collaborate on a project which will see them overcome the challenge and create a concept in the space of 12 hours.

Throughout the two-day experience participants are introduced to our expert, external mentors who impart their knowledge in their specialisms which cover several areas including idea development, market research, pivoting away from a problem, revenue streams, customer profiling and marketing.

The key skills and knowledge developed in this event will support you with your own start-up or your personal development in becoming an enterprising employee.

This event is unique, in-demand event and therefore places are limited and are offered based on your application. To apply for your place look out for the event invitation via email and posters on campus.


Ready to start-up?

We run specialised start-up and growth workshops for the students and graduates engaging with us to start a business or become self-employed. Workshops are tailored and are only open to those already receiving support from us. If you're looking for support with your idea and want to find out more about our workshops, please get in touch.

If you've already set up your business, you can still get in touch to find out the ways we can support you and gain access to workshops.



Do you have a winning idea? As a Santander University we take part in Santander's annual entrepreneurship competition. Keep in touch with the Student and Graduate Enterprise team and look out for information when the next competition arises.


Dates for our events, workshops and competitions will be promoted throughout the year, if you are keen to find out more our team would be happy to discuss them with you. Please email our team at
