Applications are closed.


Due to the coronavirus pandemic, clients may withdraw from the Challenge if circumstances change. This is out of our control and we will be unable to offer new clients or projects. In this event, we will offer the opportunity to complete the Challenge but without the input of the client. 

What do students say about it? 

The business that I had to work on was not in an area that I was familiar with. I liked this, as it really challenged me to develop new skills and think outside-the-box.

Final year Law student 

I liked how much independence we had with the task and how well my group worked together. It was an extremely fulfilling program that helped me gain excellent experience.

Second year Politics and International Relations student

The challenge exceeded my expectations, particularly the relationship I built with my team and the support we received from [our client]. The volume of work was more than I had expected; however, the value of the experience made the work feel completely worthwhile.

The Nottingham Consultancy Challenge has massively developed and enhanced my employability skills. From communication and teamwork to research and consultancy experience, I can honestly say that participating in the Consultancy Challenge has been one of my best decisions at university.
