This free three-day course is for research students and staff at UCL. It will help you develop entrepreneurial skills to enhance your career.

This workshop will help you recognise and develop the entrepreneurial skills you use in research. You'll explore how these skills can have a broader use and impact - for example, by helping enhance public understanding of your field, engage with business and start your own business.

Learning outcomes

The course will help you to:

  • build and/or develop your own entrepreneurial skill set
  • deal with the changing research landscape more confidently, using your entrepreneurial skills
  • gain confidence in your own entrepreneurial abilities

You’ll develop your abilities in these five key entrepreneurial traits: 

  • Persuasion 
  • Leadership
  • Personal accountability
  • Goal orientation 
  • Interpersonal skills

Who can attend
