The International Entrepreneurs’ Programme seeks to develop the entrepreneurial and leadership skills of international students. The programme will deliver skills to a broad group of international students, and will also specifically address the development needs of those students considering applying for a Tier 1 Entrepreneurship visa at the end of their degree; enhancing their competitiveness in the application process and ensuring that they have are well place for launching their business on being awarded a visa.

Consisting of a series of workshops, delivered by experts, international students will explore the “entrepreneurs’ journey” from initial idea development to developing a pitch ready minimum viable product.

The main aim of this project is to empower and enable international students with skills so that they can either start their enterprise in the UK after applying for the visa or start their enterprise in their home country.
