QHack is a high-energy, fun, intensive in-person bootcamp, which gives you opportunities to learn how to get businesses off the ground, meet entrepreneurial students, network with mentors and experts and, quite possibly by the end of it launch your own business!
QHack is eligible to be listed on your Higher Education Achievement Record (HEAR), meaning you can leave QMUL with a more enhanced HEAR. The HEAR shows employers an overview of everything you have gained from your time at Queen Mary – a breakdown of modules and marks, and a way to have all your extracurricular activity officially authorised.
I learnt a lot regarding starting up a business during QHack. I picked up and improved on skills that are vital for successfully building a business. — Muhammadtaki Hooda, School of Engineering and Materials Science
