Introducing START UP Sprints

A START UP Sprint is a series of intensive development workshops and specialist support, which will appear on your Higher Education Achievement Record. 

We have designed three Sprints to meet the needs of freelancers, company creators and social entrepreneurs, each with six sessions delivered by expert professionals. Four sessions will be specific to each programme and Leadership and Networking sessions will run across all three to give participants a chance to meet and collaborate.
Each Sprint has limited places but we’re running them twice in Semester 2. The first set of Sprints begins on 1 February 2023 and the second starts on 10 May 2023.
START UP Sprints are open to current students and alumni within 3 years of graduation.
If you would like to join a START UP Sprint, speak to your Start-up Adviser or Business Adviser. 
If you’re not working with an adviser yet, attend our next START UP Essentials workshop or book an initial appointment through MyCareer to begin your journey with us.
