Student Consultancy Projects

Boost your CV and gain hands-on consultancy experience.

As part of a team of volunteer students, you’ll be paired with a business to deliver an exciting short-term consultancy project. Selected from a diverse cross-section of academic backgrounds, your team of 4-6 students will deliver a project for one of London’s brightest SMEs over a period of 8-12 weeks, with the help of an expert advisor.

The Student Consultancy projects offer a real boost to your CV – past students have been offered jobs directly due to their participation in this scheme. You’ll also get priority places on consultancy career days throughout the year; receive a half-day’s training on how to form a high-performance team and deliver successful consultancy projects; and receive a certificate of participation on the project’s completion. Your project will be also put forward for the Best Student Consultancy Project at UCL Enterprise’s high-profile annual Awards for Enterprise event.

Past projects include:

  • Business plans
  • Environmental and green projects
  • Experimental designs
  • Marketing strategies
  • Quantitative and qualitative market research
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Specific research
  • Technical support for cutting-edge and innovative projects.

To find out more, you need to attend an information session. Following that, there are monthly 1-hour workshops on project scoping, in order to help you prepare for your projects. Keep an eye on this web page for more details. If you fully participate in a Student Consultancy Project, you will qualify for an entry in your Higher Education Achievement Record (HEAR).
