Easy to Get Involved

Being an Enterprise Studio, this is very much about an ‘Enterprising Spirit.’ We understand that you are students, not seasoned professionals. We understand you are very busy with your studies and hence may worry about time commitments and competing demands. As a result we offer a high level of flexibility and support to make it easier for students to get involved.

  • We have a broad range of projects offering differing levels of technical challenge – from the very simple to more complex integrated systems.
  • We are happy for students to work on a speculative ‘Have a Go’ basis taking on a project with no fixed commitment to deliver. This means you can have a go and if you deliver something that is great, but if you don’t, than no worries.
  • Free to change your mind at any time. If you feel you decide the work is not for you, or you are too busy, then simply let us know and you can just drop out.
  • The hours are flexible. We are happy for students simply to offer the amount of free time you have, whether is a couple of hours a week or bigger blocks of time.
  • We are happy for students to work at a time and place that works for them.
  • There will be support from Academics and Client to help guide and advise
