Why Oxford ?
With excellent links to London, all main airports and rail stations, Oxford is an easily accessible destination for both UK and international delegates. The “city of dreaming spires” is home to world leading education and research institutions with a booming economy that attracts many million visitors a year from all over the world.
Located a stone’s throw away from the Cotswolds, the UK’s second largest protected landscape, where you can enjoy ancient beech woodlands, thatched cottages, honey-coloured dry stone walls and centuries-old buildings that will leave you feeling like you have travelled back in time.
Oxford Brookes University has over 150 years of history. In the past seven years, the Enterprise Support programme has been fostering the development of numerous start-ups led by students, graduates and staff alike. Through a comprehensive training scheme, aspiring entrepreneurs benefit from interacting with experienced mentors working in the industry and get to practice their enterprise skills in real life situations, having them truly embed our guiding principles of enterprising creativity and generosity of spirit.
