Extracurricular course

What is it?

The Extracurricular course will provide you with an opportunity to learn more about entrepreneurship from both academic and practitioner perspectives. After a short intro into the topic, you will work in collaborative, cross-faculty groups to practice what you've just learnt and develop new skills. Every evening concludes with real challenges presented by our invited speakers from diverse industries.

Whether you want to test if entrepreneurship is for you, or you are lookng for great ideas and future team members - there are plenty of opportunities for everyone. We have a number of great initiatives coming out of this course - CCDiagnostics, Colotech, and IVWear are just some of them.

Who can attend?

Our sessions are open for any student from the UoG and (if places available) others who wish to participate. The maximum is 100 places.
Participation in our course is free, but it requires a regular attendance, group work and dedication.
