NACUE College & University Membership

The beneficiaries of these services are for institutions only.

Why join the NACUE network as a College & University Member?

Our network is driven by a shared passion for student enterprise and entrepreneurship amongst students, graduates, academics and educators. As a NACUE ‘College & University Member’ you will gain access to the largest grassroots enterprise network and will join our cause in ‘Powering the Enterprising Generation’.

We are committed to advancing the development of education and student engagement throughout the UK, in collaboration with our growing network of college and university members. We champion institutions who are dedicated to student enterprise, share best practice examples amongst the network, foster an enterprising culture, advocate policy changes within government and deliver bespoke enterprise education projects that develop students’ skills, confidence and knowledge.

Our additional products and services are all aligned with practical learning concepts, enabling learners to apply their knowledge to a practical situation, such as rapidly developing business concepts, selling products to the public or inspiring their peers through student-led activities.

We understand the importance and need in developing front facing leaders and ensure our programmes are contributing to the requirements of annual student satisfaction surveys such as the National Student Survey (NSS), Destination of Leavers Higher Education Survey (DLHE) and Higher education-business and community interaction survey (HE-BCI) thus supporting the recognition which educational institutions rightly deserve.

  • Greater exposure to your commitment and dedication to the sector

    We have recognised that the institutions within our members network are incredibly committed to supporting student enterprise and therefore we are keen to recognise your efforts and profile your work amongst the network.
