In Week 2 of next term, in conjunction with Bond University, Somerset College is again conducting the Celebration of Entrepreneurship. This Celebration will deliver a programme which supports the growth of entrepreneurial skills amongst Somerset College students.

The initiative will provide students from across the Gold Coast with the knowledge, networks and hands-on experience to help them launch their own enterprises both now and in the future. We are very excited about bringing this exciting opportunity to the Somerset College community.
