A Consultancy Project is a collaborative process for students to identify and solve a key problem or challenge faced by an external client. This form of assessment will bridge the gap between the classroom and industry and offer students practical experience in a work based context. The overriding aim is for students to experience real external problems or challenges, be able to work collaboratively, interpret research findings and present meaningful conclusions and recommendations to the client.
A consultancy project will demonstrate a student’s ability to:
- Develop and maintain client relationships
- Work collaboratively
- Undertake relevant and in-depth research
- Evaluate and analyse data and research
- Problem solve
- Present conclusions and recommendations to the client
