What is an Enterprise Residency?
Our Enterprise Residency placement connects to a specific assessed module within your course (ask your lecturer if this programme is offered to you).
The programme is designed to give you the freedom to develop your own ideas, and developing enterprising skills and qualities. It is linked to the core SHU Graduate Attributes:
- Knowledge Application
- Motivation and Engagement
- Social Responsibility
- Creative and Critical Thinking
- Integrity and Professionalism
- Research and Enquiry
- Digital Literacy
The development of these key skills will help you set up a business venture (from freelancing to start-ups) or stand out from the crowd in a competitive graduate job market.
The Enterprise Residency programme may run for a single semester or throughout the academic year. You will be required to work independently and will have access to the Hallam i-Lab.
Your course may run teaching alongside the Enterprise Residency.
You will work individually or in a team (of up to 5) to develop an idea that can be concept only, or taken to market as a commercial/non-commercial venture.
