Jobless graduates given chance to develop entrepreneurial skills

Published: Thursday, 18 February 2010   Category: All Graduate job news

Graduate job hunters in Wales may be interested to hear that the University of Wales has joined forces with Cardiff Business Club to offer a "travelling scholarship" to help unemployed graduates become entrepreneurs.

Announced at a Cardiff Business Club lecture by Lord Puttnam, the scheme will give one graduate the chance to spend up to a fortnight at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, to learn about starting a new business.

Professor Marc Clement, the vice-chancellor of the University of Wales, said: "The job market is becoming increasingly difficult for young people and it is critical that we support their creativity, energy and enterprise in different ways.

"By giving one of our graduates the opportunity to widen their horizons at the world's most entrepreneurial university we hope that they will be inspired to come back and start a business here in Wales."

The University of Wales is a confederal university founded in 1893 and has accredited institutions throughout Wales ranging from established higher education providers like Aberystwyth and Bangor, to post-1992 universities like Newport.
