External Engagement | UC Centre for Entrepreneurship

External Engagement

UCE works closely with the external business community to develop a range of collaborative opportunities for the enrichment of students, staff and companies. Students will benefit from being able to apply their knowledge in real world applications with companies committed to entrepreneurial endeavours.


We welcome the opportunity to organise internships for our students so that they can apply their knowledge in real world applications while acquiring real world experience.

Experiential Learning Projects

Is your business facing a particular problem or challenge, or do you have a project that you would like to get off the ground but can't quite find the time to make it happen? Our young, idealistic entrepreneurial students could be the ideal solution for you.


We welcome support from the business community in the form of scholarships, sponsorship and donations. Please contact us if you would like to discuss this opportunity further.


If you or your company would like to participate in the activities of UCE, through mentoring, offering short courses or workshops, or joining the Advisory Board, we welcome your interest.

If you would like to be involved in one of the above ways contact us today or fill out our online form.
