New research from Santander UK reveals that over a quarter of students currently run or plan to run a business whilst at university. The study – which polled 1,000 undergraduates from across the UK – found that almost one in ten (9%) entrepreneurs are already running a business alongside their studies, an increase from just 6% recorded in 2018, with an additional 18% of students saying they have plans to start their own business venture in the near future.
