Year in Enterprise

Spend a year turning your business idea into reality.

If you’re passionate about new ways of doing business, you might be thinking about the possibility of setting up your own venture. If so, we can help you launch and grow it.

If you’ve got an idea for a business you think is worth pursuing, you can choose to spend your third year focusing on it as part of your degree with us.

Our Year in Enterprise scheme is an alternative to our professional placement or study abroad programme – where you can add on an additional year to your course to do something hands on, as an extra boost to your career.

You’ll receive support, training and mentoring to turn your business idea into reality, including a three-day bootcamp, training days and access to the Loughborough Enterprise Startup Lab.

Lots of our students have gone on to set up their own successful purpose-led ventures, including a cookbook for tinnitus sufferers, a career social network for students, and a content creation and documentary maker that’s shining a light on social and global issues.

If you’ve got a business idea you want to explore and get help with, contact us.
