    At Oxford Brookes Enterprise Support, we want to make sure our students, staff and recent graduates move on to the right career for them.

    Whether you’re exploring the job market or keen to start up your own business, we aim to provide the personal development opportunities to get you there. Our Enterprise Support programme is packed with activities designed to broaden your skill set and boost your confidence – and you’ll have the support of one of our business mentors the whole way.

    For those curious (or apprehensive!) about the job market, we’ll provide you with the skills and experience that could set your CV apart from the rest. With the Enterprise Support programme, you’ll have the chance to attend job fairs, talk to prospective employers and learn more about how to get into competitive industries.

    Or, if you have a business idea you can’t quite shake, we have a brilliant lineup of events designed to help you through the initial stages of starting up.

  • Developing your skills

    We’ve created our programme around the key qualities of entrepreneurship, and we’re dedicated to making sure our Enterprise Support programme gives you all the knowledge and expertise you need.

    By taking part in the programme, you’ll learn about planning, management, ethical and sustainable thinking, creativity, finance and more. For information about the skills you can learn from each event, visit our Events page.
