Enterprise student spotlight

The University of St Andrews supports the development of Graduate Attributes. These are the 20 identified characteristics which students have the opportunity to acquire during their time at the University. Underpinned by the attribute of Social Responsibility, the Graduate Attributes are divided into four categories:

  • Valuing Diversity
  • Leadership Skills
  • Entrepreneurial Mind-set
  • Global Outlook. 

The Graduate Attributes are developed by a combination of curricular, co-curricular (University activities that aren’t part of the academic curriculum), and extra-curricular activities. Enterprise and Entrepreneurial Education supports the development of the attributes through taught modules including ID2007 and VIP modules, co-curricular activities such as the Summer Team Enterprise Programme and extra-curricular activities like workshops and our Pecha Kucha evenings.  

Explore the content below and learn about the wealth of enterprising opportunities offered at St Andrews, as well as the students' own thoughts on what makes a successful entrepreneur.

We are eager to shine a light on enterprising students and to showcase their endeavours. Please email enterprising@st-andrews.ac.uk if you would like to be featured.
