Innovation and Applied Entrepreneurship

The course is team based and uses a 'learning by doing' approach. In training sessions, you will be supported by an experienced team coach. As well as undertaking projects based on 'wicked problems' (complex issues requiring input from different perspectives and backgrounds), you will have opportunities to bring your own startup ideas and benefit from the input of other team members. Masterclasses are highly interactive and are led by academic and industry experts, whilst online delivery of some modules allows you to engage with individual study units as and when they are most relevant to you. Group working is a key element and you will have plenty of opportunity to practise and develop your team working capabilities. The opportunities to share learning across multi-disciplinary teams will also help you to learn more, and at a faster rate.

Entry requirements

An honours degree (minimum 2.2) from a recognised Higher Education institution or equivalent from a recognised overseas institution. If you do not have a first degree, certain professional qualifications combined with work experience may be sufficient. If English is not your first language, you will be required to meet UWE's minimum English Language requirements - the International English Language Test (IELTS) 6.5 overall with a minimum of 5.5 in all components.

Assessment methods

The assessment on this course is designed to demonstrate that you can apply theory to practice effectively and to develop skills that will be useful in your future career. There are no written exams.
