Student enterprise

You can study enterprise alongside a number of subjects as part of an undergraduate degree, giving you a firm understanding of business and entrepreneurship. 

You may be able to take enterprise-related discovery modules as part of your course. They’ll help you develop transferable skills such as commercial awareness, creative problem-solving, teamworking, leadership and communication – skills that top employers look for in graduates.
