The Process

Students offer clients a full consultancy experience. After initially scoping the project, client organisations can expect students in groups of 4 to 5 to get hands on and tackle the client’s consultancy brief.

In most cases this would include meeting the client organisation at the start of the project, communicating the progress, conducting primary or secondary research on behalf of the client organisation, and finally making recommendations in the form of a detailed professional report and presentation at the end of the project.

The students are under the supervision of an experienced Tutor who guides them throughout the process.



What Can You Expect?

The consultancy advise is free, but an investment in time is required. The consultancy project runs for 1 semester. For undergraduates, this is from January until May and for the postgraduates from May until September.

We ask you to provide the following:

 • A clear consultancy brief on what you would like the students to work on (see below for our areas of expertise)

• Provide the students with the necessary information and regular contact to answer any further questions if needed

• Availability to attend the final presentation of the report

• Evaluation of the finished report and presentation in terms of how well it addresses the agreed brief. Depending on the circumstances and your wishes, the project will run partly or fully online
