Entrepreneurship is increasingly seen as a vital skill in the workplace and society. This Undergraduate Certificate in Venture Creation provides an opportunity to develop a systematic understanding of entrepreneurship and enterprise, in an intellectually rigorous way, while supporting behaviours, attributes and competencies that are likely to have a positive impact on your entrepreneurial capability.




Entry requirements 

There are no formal academic entry requirements for this course but as it is taught at university level, and in order to get the most from the course, applicants should be able to read, write and speak English fluently.

English language requirement 

If English is not your first language, you need to be able to prove you meet the University of Cambridge English language requirements on application. For further information, see English language requirements for Undergraduate Certificates, Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas

Technical requirements

For the 2023-2024 Academic Year this course is being taught remotely. This means there will be no face-to-face teaching and you will not need to be present in person in Cambridge, although there is an expectation that you will attend synchronous teaching sessions. The course content will be delivered, and the learning outcomes met, through the use of video-based teaching platforms and a dedicated course Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

You will therefore need to have access to:

- the internet via a computer, laptop, tablet or other smart device. 

- speakers or headphones in order to hear any pre-recorded material

- a webcam and microphone for any interactive sessions which may be available

Once you are logged into the VLE you can familiarise yourself with the learning environment. There is also guidance about how to access course materials and activities. 

Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. If your first language is not English, please refer to our Information for Applicants pages for further guidance.
