International students starting their own business 

BEIU recognises that international students at Buckingham have great enterprise ideas, but sometimes not enough time to realise their potential due to limited time in the UK. BEIU is proud to be participating in the start-up visa programme in order to support those students after they graduate. Get in touch with BEIU to find out more.
