Why the UK is the best place to study Entrepreneurship


The UK is a top destination for international students who wish to study business, and in 2017 more business schools than ever are now focusing on innovation and entrepreneurship. Universities are preparing these new entrepreneurs to not only make a significant contribution to the local economy, but also start a business after graduation and offer employment to local residents.

The UK is a top ten global destination to start, grow, and run a business (Global Entrepreneurship Index 2017) and the UK’s business-friendly regulations, skilled workforce and Tier-1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) visa for international students makes it an attractive proposition.

Top business schools such as Said Business School, Judge Business School or Imperial Business School place a special emphasis on digital technology and entrepreneurship.

Tier-1 (Graduate Entrepreneur Visa)

The Tier-1 (Graduate Entrepreneur Visa) allows students to stay in the UK for a year after graduation if they have a credible business plan which is approved by their university. The visa can be further extended by showing satisfactory progress.

After completing your time on the Graduate Entrepreneur visa, you will be eligible to switch to Tier 1 Entrepreneur with reduced investment funds of £50,000. A Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa is initially valid for 3 years and 4 months with the possibility of further renewal subject to meeting extension requirements.
