Student Business Start-up Support

Student Business Start-up Support is our virtual hub that provides dedicated support to ARU’s enterprising and entrepreneurial students.

Get in touch to receive structured business support, mentoring and guidance – no matter where you are on campus or in the start-up cycle. We work with students who are self-employed, freelancers and even those who work in microbusinesses.

Half-hour sessions take place Monday–Friday, between 11am–1pm, via telephone or video call.

Select a 30-minute virtual drop-in session and get the chance to explain your business idea in detail. The session will tailor the support you need, whether that's regular business support, monthly mentoring or signposting based on your area of need. We can help with business planning, marketing, intellectual property, and more.

Book your place here.
