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.
Challenges take 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 your challenge is based.
Applications for the spring 2019 Challenge are now open and will close at 7pm on Sunday 2 December 2018.
Find out more at a drop-in information session.
Blog: why do the Challenge?
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 take place at all three UK campuses – University Park, Sutton Bonington, and Jubilee.
You will need to be available each week at the same time to meet with your team for the full duration of the Consultancy Challenge.
Every Tuesday from 12 February to 2 April: 12–2pm
Every Wednesday from 13 February to 3 April: 2–4pm
Every Thursday from 14 February to 3 April: 10am–12pm
Applications close on Sunday 7 December 2018 at 7pm.
