Applying for a project

All Management students eligible for a student project will be invited to apply. The application process for the 2019-20 projects is outlined below:

  1. Project application form: We want to know more about you, your skills and experiences, and how would you tackle the project.
  2. Projects advertised to shortlisted students: If your application is successful, you'll get access to Project specification forms outlining the background of each host organisation, details of project opportunity, required skills, type of feedback they want (expenses and bursaries).
  3. Project selection: Apply for projects you want to take up for your dissertation and which genuinely interest you. Don't forget you can only go for opportunities open to your course (projects may be limited).
  4. Internal interview selection: Students will be shortlisted, then interviewed by SUMS staff and put forward for projects.
  5. External meeting: Students put forward for projects will have a meeting with the host organisation.
