Final year undergraduates in the School of Life Sciences at the University of Glasgow may take a two week, intensive course called Business & Bioscience. Student teams work together on the development of innovative bioscience products.

After the two week course, the students are required to plan and organise events which will be of benefit to students and the local community. Since 2008 there have been more than twelve events, ranging from “Safety on Campus” to “Style That’s Worthwhile”. This paper will examine the development of the events and the transition from student events to local community events.

This paper was presented at the 37th Improving University Teaching International Conference, University of Innsbruck, July 24-27th.
