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.

Once you've signed up, you can 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.

The drop-in session will tailor the support you need, whether that's regular business support, monthly mentoring or signposting based on your area of need, for example Intellectual Property.
