Bring your ideas to life

UCE provides support to students who are interested in creating a business or social enterprise. No matter the stage, whether it is still a concept or an existing business, UCE has the right staff on hand to provide advice to students on how to move forward.

Complementing the one-on-one advice, UCE run a variety of programmes and events specifically targeted at those students interested in establishing or running a business or social enterprise. UCE is the perfect place for students to explore and experiment with their ideas in a supportive environment where it is safe to take risks and try new ideas.
