Are you an International Student/Graduate?

Unfortunately, international students cannot participate in BSEEN while they are still studying, as the programme involves setting up a business officially.

International students who have finished their degree are able to set up a business under the Graduate Route or potentially the Innovator Founder Visa.

Please contact your individual university to find out more before completing an application.

Before you apply…

  • Before applying, please double check here that you are eligible to take part in the programme.

  • Still not sure about something? Check out our FAQs.
