Getting the right advice can make all the difference to your organisation.

If you need an expert view or a fresh perspective, our academics have many years of experience of working with businesses and government institutions of all sizes, both locally and further afield. By drawing on one of our 800 academic experts across 17 subject-based departments, you can gain access to specialist consultants to engage on specific projects at a level to suit your needs. Our Masters or PhD level postgraduate students are also available to work on consultancy projects, under academic supervision.

Whether it's a short-term consultancy agreement or an ongoing partnership, we have the expertise to meet your requirements.

How it works

You don't need a detailed brief when you approach us. Bring us the issues you're facing and we'll help to define a proposition that meets your needs. We can then pinpoint the relevant expertise within our University, cost the project, and draw up contracts and agreements. Our expertise can be applied in many different ways, including:

  • technical advice on product development and process re-engineering
  • product testing and analysis
  • developing bespoke training sessions for you and your team on a specific topic
  • help with market research and business planning
  • survey and research design
  • expert advice on policy, legal and legislative issues
