Business engagement and partnerships
We work with organisations large and small to help solve some of the world’s toughest challenges. Working with us means connecting with one of the world's leading universities. We are proud of our connections with business, governmental, and third sector organisations.
Support our students
Host a student project
Students can work with your company on a particular issue or challenge set by you as the host organisation, and guided by us, on a project over the summer period.
Provide a student placement
A placement is when a student takes employment in a job role during their study time, either over a year or over a shorter period during the summer.
Collaborate with academics
Our specialist academics provide tailored research and consultancy resources that can help you find the best solutions for your organisation.
