If you reckon your degree could do with a bit of a shake-up, Making Ideas Happen might be for you.

Our 20-credit interdisciplinary module gives you the chance to develop a social enterprise solution to a 'real-world' problem. Give it a whirl.

Essays. Exams. Lectures. Ever felt as though you’d like to do something a little bit different on your degree?

Making Ideas Happen – or, as we like to call it, MIH – is our 20-credit enterprise module. Not only does it give you an introduction to the world of enterprise, entrepreneurship and innovation, but it challenges you to use this knowledge to come up with sustainable social enterprise solutions to ‘real-world’ problems.

Don’t worry, though – you won’t have to tackle such a challenge alone. If you study MIH you will be developing your entrepreneurial skills while working in interdisciplinary project teams to generate sustainable business solutions to ‘real-world’ problems identified by external individuals and organisations. This also gives you the opportunity to meet and work with students outside your usual peer group.

The module is assessed through your group business plan and pitch as well as individual coursework, which involves blogging, reflection and skills audits, giving you the opportunity to test your skills and do something radically different to academic writing and cramming for exams.

MIH is available to any student in second or third year with enough credits leftover to splurge. It’s also open to all subjects, meaning you get the chance to mix with students from a wide variety of different backgrounds and learn from them along the way.

PLEASE NOTE: USE will only accept Add/Drop applications for the Autumn and Spring semester up until the Friday of Week 1 of the Add/Drop period for each semester. After this date no further requests to add the module will be accepted. If you have already studied USE201 (‘Making Ideas Happen’, level 2), you are not eligible to choose USE301.
