Self Employment

The Student Enterprise Service at the University of Lincoln is the hub for providing entrepreneurial students and graduates with the guidance and resources they require, turning their business ideas into a reality and helping them to become self-employed. Dedicated to offering easily-accessible support, Student Enterprise provides a forum for both students and graduates where ideas can thrive, problems can be solved and where skills can grow.

This section of the website is devoted to live Q&A sessions with our own advisers or external employers. We will promote the Live Q&A’s in advance and you can also access session archives below.

The Student Enterprise Service is based in the Enterprise Building (behind the Library). We offer a range of support to all Students and Graduates across the University of Lincoln. We can help with all things relating to enterprise and self-employment. Whether you are looking to gain new skills, go freelance or start your own business, we are here to help you.


Have you always dreamt of working for yourself and making money for you rather than someone else?

Do you want to re-invent the career ladder and do things your own way?

You don't have to be creative or an inventor! Your idea could be about making something or bringing a product to market.

You don’t need to be an expert in business, you can gain all the skills and knowledge you need from Student Enterprise.
