Pioneer is a dedicated, extra-curricular course for Birkbeck students who are interested in enterprise and entrepreneurship and who want to develop the knowledge and skills to excel as an entrepreneur.

We are delighted to be collaborating with Santander for this year's Pioneer programme.

About Pioneer 

  • Pioneer provides a starting point for those with an idea or concept that they want to develop further, support for students wanting to set up their own business in the future, as well as the opportunity to develop core skills to excel in their careers, be it as an entrepreneur, freelancer or within an organisation. 
  • Watch one of our past students talk about the course (previously called BECCA).
