Student consultancy projects

Student projects are an excellent opportunity to bring new insights into your business whilst at the same time developing the skills of our students and giving them valuable ‘hands-on' experience.

Both our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes place a strong emphasis on practice as well as theory. Companies can get involved in a variety of initiatives, ranging from short assignments that share best practice/current thinking on a given topic to student projects that focus on your business issues. Student projects vary in length from 2 to 16 weeks, with students working in groups of 2 to 6 on a brief agreed with you.

To find out more about the short assignments, what student projects are available, their timings and who to contact to discuss your needs further, see the chart below.
