Business start-up support
If you are thinking of setting up a business, now or in the future, we have a well-established start-up team who are connected to the regional business networks including many of our university Alumni. The team offer a series of advice and guidance workshops, often featuring external contributors who have launched successful enterprises themselves, as well as one to one support, mentoring, and help with competitions and grants.
Mentoring and Widening Participation
The university has its own range of mentoring programmes for you to choose from. Mentoring is a catalyst for personal and professional growth and it’s open to everyone - we encourage all of our students to consider taking part in a mentoring programme.
We recognise that accessing the employment path you want isn’t the same experience for everyone, and sometimes there are groups or individuals who face additional or different barriers. For example:
- People with a disability
- Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC)
- Black and Racialised Minorities
- Lower Socio-economic background
- Women in STEM
Many organisations are creating internships, mentoring programmes, training opportunities, funded Masters or PhD programmes for identified student groups. We find and promote as many of these as possible so you have a chance apply for these valuable opportunities to widen participation.

International placement and exchange support
If you are thinking of studying or working abroad for a while, we have ways to help you achieve this. The Turing scheme is open to all students at the university, whether you are taking part in the university exchange programme or finding your own international work or development experience, and can help towards the costs.
