Student Enterprise runs regular series of enterprise skills workshops throughout the academic year. The sessions are aimed primarily at undergraduate and postgraduate students who would like to find out more about starting their own business or social enterprise. The sessions are also open to staff as well as students. You can come along to as many sessions as you like.

What's involved?

The sessions usually take place on Tuesdays during semester and run from 6-7:30 p.m and are free to all University of Surrey students and alumni who have engaged wit us during their time at Surrey.  

Led by business professionals, the workshops are aimed at promoting an awareness of the different areas that need to be addressed/considered when setting up a business.  The sessions are introductory and broad in nature. Where appropriate,  the sessions will be as interactive as possible and will make use of case studies to help illustrate points and bring the subject alive for participants. You will be able to ask questions and be signposted to sources of further information.

Enactus Surrey is a society at the University of Surrey, but to our members it’s more than just a society. Enactus is a worldwide community of students, academics, and business leaders committed to using entrepreneurial action to improve lives and shape a better, more sustainable world.

Enactus Surrey has many projects both locally and internationally. An example of one of our local projects is JumpStart, which is a project that aims to reduce youth unemployment in Guildford by running employability workshops and one-to-one mentoring. An example of one of our international projects is Source, which is a project in the Philippines that provides and installs solar lighting to houses that do not have lighting, or are using kerosene lamps.  

As well as having a positive impact on people’s lives, being part of Enactus also opens many opportunities, like free training to develop skills. Regional, National and Global World Cup competitions take place annually, these develop the leadership skills of Enactus members as well as providing a platform to meet other teams and share ideas in a culture of learning and developing from each other.
