Applications are now open for Enterprise Placement Year 2015/16.


Work placements are an essential part of many courses, but the conventional route is not your only option. Instead of an internship or placement with an employer, why not think about setting up your own business or working for yourself?


You’ll get group and 1:1 business advice as well as weekly enterprise skills and networking sessions. You may be eligible to apply for a Proof of Concept grant of up to £500 to help prove that your business idea is a winner and benefit from all the business support facilities on offer in the Duke of York Young Entrepreneur Centre hot desk office space.


We'll work with you to help you make a success of your business. Following your placement year, you can apply for on-going support and access to our services for an additional year through our Enterprise Support programme.
