Enterprising students

At Loughborough we provide students with plenty of opportunities to engage in enterprise education and activities, and to develop commercial skills and business awareness.

There are additional practical services and facilities to enable students to develop, grow and exploit entrepreneurial skills and ideas. Being taught by staff active in cutting edge research ensures learning is exciting and relevant. Our Student Enterprise Manager helps students to identify, protect and exploit the commercial potential of their ideas.

Enterprising and creative Loughborough graduates can apply to The Studio, a unique two-year support package for graduates taking their first steps in business.

Studio members have access to the University’s specialist facilities and expertise as well as academic library and IT services. They are also based in a fully serviced office space and follow a tailored training and mentoring programme.
