What are enterprise skills?

Being enterprising simply means having the confidence and ability to: identify opportunities, act on ideas, make decisions, and be innovative and creative. So what are you waiting for, explore the opportunities and support available to you below and broaden your enterprising mind-set while you’re at university!

Head of Student Enterprise

I have greatly benefited from my participation in student enterprise events and have often found them to be an invaluable tool in interviews when asked to recall experiences where I have demonstrated a certain trait or skill. I highly recommend all students consider these activities at some point during their time at Southampton - my only regret is not getting involved earlier!
