The Nottingham Consultancy Challenge offers you the chance to gain hands-on experience of managing a short-term project for a local business or charity as part of a team.
You'll gain skills in project management, teamworking and problem solving over an eight-week period in the spring semester.
There are challenges taking place on the Jubilee, University Park and Sutton Bonington campuses so you can choose your preferred location – and you don't have to be studying at the campus where the challenge is based.
Applications are now open. Read the information below before filling in the application form.
Applications will close on 1 December 2017.
Come to one of our information sessions to find out more about the Consultancy Challenge. No booking required – just turn up.

Each client has selected an issue or a problem that is important to them. They may not have the resources or expertise to address the issue, so would like your insight.
Challenges will take place at all three UK campuses – University Park, Sutton Bonington, and Jubilee.
You are free to express a preference for a challenge on whichever campus you like – it doesn't have to be the campus on which your studies are based.
The dates of the challenges are below and you have to be available each week for the Challenge you choose. The application form will ask for your choice.
Every Tuesday from 30 January to 20 March: 12–2pm
Every Wednesday from 31 January to 21 March: 2–4pm
Every Thursday from 1 February to 22 March: 10am–12pm
