Challenges Online - 7-11 June 2021

We have designed this online programme based on Grand Challenges, which has been successfully running for the last seven years. Challenges Online ran for the first time in 2020, and is returning on 7-11 June 2021. Challenges for 2021 are currently in development.

Challenges Online is a week-long online programme where you will collaborate with other students to tackle a real world challenge, with support from leading academics and postgraduate facilitators. You will have the freedom to focus on the questions and issues you are most passionate about, and create a project that aims to make a difference. You will get experience of digital collaborative working, which will make you stand out to employers in today's rapidly changing landscape where virtual working has become the norm. Following the Challenges Online week, the University can support you to continue with your projects so you can make a longer term impact.
