This study evaluates the future design of entrepreneurship education (EE) based on the retrospective experiences of students regarding the educational experience encountered at two UK universities. The contribution here is to identify optimum course design and programme impact which informs the discipline. This study utilises the QAA’s (2018) definition of ‘enterprise and entrepreneurship’programmes as focusing ‘on the development and application of an enterprising mindset and skills in the specific contexts of setting up a new venture, developing and growing an existing business, or designing an entrepreneurial organisation’(p. 6). Therefore, the focus is on both undergraduate and postgraduate students who have completed a programme of EE that aims to educate students for self-employment and prepares them for an entrepreneurial career. The following section considers the EE literature followed by a discussion of the methodology employed within the study. Thereafter, the key findings are presented followed by a discussion in contrast to the extant literature. The study ends with the Conclusion section confirming the contribution to knowledge achieved, the implications for both policy and practice, study limitations and further research required.
