Entrepreneurship and study abroad

International opportunities

Would you like to spend some time in another country as part of your studies? The department has several links with universities abroad and encourages students to gain wider experience in an international context.

We are able to offer great opportunities for students on the MEng programmes to undertake their final year research project in Singapore, France, Germany or Spain. 

The enterprise option

Have you got a fantastic idea for a new invention and for starting your own business? If you are interested in becoming an entrepreneur you can apply to take the enterprise option.

You apply for an Enterprise Scholarship to work at the Manchester Science Enterprise Centre during the summer vacation after the third year. There you spend approximately eight weeks researching the technology and market in relation to your particular project and producing a business plan. In the fourth year of the course your final research project is based on this venture.
