Students might be expected to be more likely spending their money in Norwich's pubs than using it to start a money-making enterprise.
But these University of East Anglia (UEA) students showed they have all the skills necessary to be the Alan Sugars of the future during the £10 challenge.
Smart-thinking Darryn Thomas was already going back to his family in South Africa, so cleverly decided to exchange his £10 for 170 South African Rands.
That gave him more spending power in his home country.
Deciding 'simplicity is key', he decided to hold a barbecue and sell hot dogs after bartering with a supermarket to get the best prices for ingredients.

The result was that he came back with £55 for Elizabeth's Legacy of Hope (ELoH).
But Ceren Gulbay made even more by similarly exchanging her money for Turkish Lira, which again gave her more spending power in her native country.
