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, team working 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 for 2018 have now closed. Check this page in autumn for details of the 2019 challenge.
