Freelance Fridays

Freelance Fridays offers support through live events, blended learning, and real-life work opportunities.

Freelance Fridays modules give you confidence to launch your own freelancing business, alongside your studies. We do this through interactive activities and providing content from a range of different platforms in one easy-to-access place.

Freelance Fridays in person workshops are a great opportunity for you to hear from experts in a range of different specialisms. The workshops are about an hour and you also benefit from networking time with other freelancing students.

You can take advantage of working in our freelance hub in the Student Life. Spaces are limited so best get in touch to book a desk for the day.
