Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur profile – Yang Liu

Sheffield Hallam University is proud to have endorsed Chinese graduate Yang Liu (Elena) in order to set up her own business in the UK after graduating.

Sheffield Hallam has a Tier 1 licence from the Home Office. The licence enables the University to endorse up to 10 international graduates per year to become self-employed after completing studies. Elena was one of the successful applicants to enter the University’s competitive application process, which is run by the Enterprise Team. After receiving the endorsement Elena successfully applied for a Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur visa with the help of the International Experience Team. The visa allows her to be self-employed in the UK.

Elena founded Yang For Young Limited in March 2017. Yang For Young offers good quality and easy-to-use products to help young people with sensory impairments to gain more life skills.

Elena so impressed the judges from the UK Steel Enterprise Accelerator Programme that she won a prize of £10,000 to develop her business. We are confident that Elena will have a great future ahead of her!

If you are interested in following in the footsteps of Elena, contact our Enterprise team to find out about the application process. The Enterprise Team welcomes international students who are graduating from degree courses and interested in becoming entrepreneurs in the UK. Students can access free support from the Enterprise team, including free workshops and advice from professional business advisers. You don’t need to have previous business experience, but you do need to have the enthusiasm and skills to learn how to run your own business.
