The Entrepreneurship Visa enables successful international applicants to remain in the UK for 2 Years post-graduation to develop and start their business with support and endorsement from the UEL Enterprise Team.
We have two application deadlines per year in May and November.
Following the receipt of initial expressions of interest selected applicants will then be invited to submit a full application and attend our Start Up workshops. The final decision is then made at our Tier 1 Panel.
Our entry level, all year round programme ‘Start Up Sprint’ gives you access to a small test fund to help you validate your business idea and access market readiness and viability. For those of you who are more developed with your ideas we run annual start up and growth funding competitions ‘EFactor’ and ‘BYOB’.
Start-Up Sprint will take you from idea to incorporation in 6 hours!
This programme is ideal for those of you who have a fairly developed idea or are looking to turn your skills into money and start freelancing/gigging whilst you are studying or straight after university. If successful, you will be enrolled onto a programme of 6 tailored one-to-one mentoring sessions which will help you build your business and develop and implement your plans.
Bring Your Own Business
Bring Your Own Business is designed for students and alumni with an already established business. The programme provides intense mentoring and a series of professional topical masterclasses which when combined will give you the focus and skills to boost your business.
