Entrepreneurship and Innovation with English Language

Kingston University has gained an excellent reputation for supporting students who are interested in becoming entrepreneurs and managing their own businesses and for developing valuable commercial and organisational skills to take into any profession or job role. We have been ranked amongst the top two most successful UK universities for producing the most graduate start-up companies since 2008!

Our summer school Entrepreneurship and Innovation pathway is based on our popular Bright Futures programme. This pathway is an interactive skills workshop to help build confidence in networking, innovation and pitching ideas and is open to all students - not just those studying business subjects. The programme includes a fun series of workshops, games and activities covering idea generation, networking, selling, pitching and much more.

Take this course if you are interested in setting up your own business or organisation, thinking about freelancing, or working for yourself. It is also a good way to improve your general employability and business skills and would be great addition to your CV/resume.

"Bright Futures was a big confidence builder!" Jenny, English student.
