Collaborate offers two programmes to businesses looking for support on a project: a short programme and a specialised program, where the student consultancy work differs in terms of length and focus.

Short Programme

  • Intensive programme running for 7-10 days outside of term time
  • Students choose a Collaboration category they want to work on
  • Businesses choose a Collaboration Category that will best help them address a current challenge
  • Students can work in Pilot Innovation Teams of up to 4 people to address a business challenge allocated to them
  • Students meet with partnered business at least 2 times in the run of the course

Specialised Programme

  • Longer running programme (up to 6 months depending on project)
  • More flexible for businesses
  • Businesses choose project they want students to work on that is specific to their field of work (e.g. need CAD drawings for current project)
  • Individual students with the relevant skills will be matched to businesses
  • Students meet with business several times across the length of project
