  • Since 2012, the University of Oxford has run a Social Enterprise awards scheme, in collaboration with Student Hubs, as part of a programme funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and managed by UnLtd, the UK foundation for social entrepreneurs. The scheme has produced some very innovative projects in which students and staff aim to engage with the local community to solve social issues.

    There are about 50 projects in and around Oxford led by students staff and graduates from the University of Oxford and from Oxford Brookes, who together with Students Hubs are our partners in a new initiative, the Oxford Social Enterprise Partnership (OSEP). In this short video some of the students from the University of Oxford talk about their social Enterprises and how they have used their Social Enterprise award funding to create sustainable social enterprises.
