Student Consultancy Projects

Boost your CV and gain hands-on consultancy experience with some of London’s most exciting SMEs. 

Work in a team of 4-6 fellow UCL students and, together with an project advisor, work to tackle a real business issue set by an SME client.

Am I eligible?

All UCL students, regardless of academic backgrounds and current studies, year of study, and work experience are eligible to participate.

Why should I get involved?

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;
  • exposure and opportunity to work directly with founders of SMEs as your client;
  • a half-day’s training on how to deliver successful consultancy projects; and
  • 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.

Many students have said that the consultancy projects were the most enjoyable part of their course.


Consultancy projects take place from several start dates throughout the year, and we hold information sessions all year round for further information. A project will generally take 12 weeks and concludes with a final report or presentation.
