Enterprise and Entrepreneurship

Aims and objectives

QAA Scotland are working with Universities Scotland to support the outcomes of the sector-wide Making It Happen initiative which aims to enhance the current provision of Enterprise & Entrepreneurship Education in Scotland’s Higher Education.

QAA Scotland is working on action one (below) of a set of eight cross-sector actions arising from the outcomes of the Making it Happen, which have been agreed by all Scottish Higher Education Institutions

We will review the curricula we teach to further embed enterprise and entrepreneurship.

The project aims to support Scottish Higher Education Institutions to offer Enterprise & Entrepreneurship education to all students, regardless of field of study, background or mode of study.


The project will support and challenge institutions to consider and enhance their approach to enterprise and entrepreneurship education through a series of sector meetings, events and webinars and the sharing of resulting resources. Activity will be aimed at senior management, career or entrepreneurship centres and teaching staff.


More information regarding the project will become available during the duration of the project. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, or would like to get involved, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Debra Macfarlane at or Emilia Todorova at
