Durham University

Durham University provides the support, resources and opportunities our students need to discover and develop their enterprising talent and create their own entrepreneurial futures.

Student enterprise is featured in the Durham University Strategy 2017-2027 and we are committed to the advancement of student enterprise provision across the institution. Delivered principally by Careers & Enterprise, we have a robust offer of support for aspiring entrepreneurs, including; 1:1 business coaching sessions, a programme of start-up workshops, access to a wide-range of contacts in industry, meet up events, funding and a high-profile business start-up competition. In addition to this, we support student led entrepreneurial activities delivered by Entrepreneurs Durham and Enactus Durham.

Entrepreneurial learning is embedded into our undergraduate and postgraduate level programmes and research. We also provide a tailored training programme for PhD students to develop enterprise skills and provide support for those exploring opportunities to commercialise their research.
