Grand Challenges Week counts towards the Exeter Award.

Grand Challenges 4th-8th June 2018

Grand Challenges is a project week running 4th-8th June 2018, in which you will work in interdisciplinary groups with other like-minded students to design innovative solutions to real world challenges. Top academics and invited speakers will share their views and help you apply your skills and knowledge to a real-life problem. You will further develop your transferable skills including team work, presentation skills and project planning.


Benefits of Grand Challenges

Grand Challenges enables you to develop a wide range of transferable skills including teamwork, communication and public speaking. You will also meet like-minded people and develop a broader understanding of global challenges.
