The Univeristat de València and Banco de Santander have announce 520 grants to cover tuition fees for courses related to entrepreneurship. Through the UVemprén Campus programme, the Universitat de València offers courses so that students can complete their training on entrepreneurship.

UVemprén Campus is a training programme aimed at the specialisation in entrepreneurship for students and graduates of the Universitat de València, which aims to promote entrepreneurship and self-employment.

Within the programme, there are training actions in different formats and with different durations, which will allow students to complete their CV through the acquisition of up to 15 entrepreneurial skills grouped in three specialisation itineraries to adapt to the European Entrepreneurship Competence Framework (EntreComp), a tool promoted by the European Union at the end of 2016 that allows the configuration of specific academic curricula that deepen entrepreneurial skills as a specialisation in university education.

The educational offer extends throughout the year 2022, including the next academic year 2022-23, for which the following courses are already planned: “Finances for entrepreneurs” (15th September), “e-commerce and digital marketing” (27th and 29th September), “Pitching” (6th October”, “Motivate agile teams” (21st and 28th October), “Creative entrepreneurship” (10th November), “Design your social enterprise with the framework of the SDGs” (25th November) and “How to convince investors” (1st December).

The forming calendar will start on 9th March with the course “Linkedin for entrepreneurship” and will continue with “Business analytics for data-driven decision making” (29th March), “Entrepreneurship in the donut economy” (11th April), “Alternative financing for entrepreneurship: crowdfunding and crowdlending” (27th April) and “Agile product design” (6th and 13th May).

These courses last between 5 and 10 hours and will be taught online in the afternoon (from 3:30 p.m to 8:30 p.m.) by experts in the different fields related to the scope of each course. The maximum number of places is 40 per course, and those interested can apply for one of the grants financed by Santander Universidades to cover tuition fees. The deadline for applications will be open until one week before each course is held.
