The industry partners set a brief about a real business problem or challenge faced by their organisation. You'll work in mixed disciplinary groups to research, analyse and work collaboratively to find solutions to this brief. Project supervisors will allocate the groups to ensure an interdisciplinary mix of students. Throughout the project, you will have the opportunity to engage with and learn from industry experts who will provide helpful information, guidance and feedback on your project.
You'll be led by an academic supervisor who'll help you achieve the learning outcomes of the unit including developing your skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, cultural competency, presentation skills and developing your own integrated professional, ethical and personal identity.
The assessments will be based on a combination of group and individual presentations and writing tasks. These include a group project plan, two individual statements, a group presentation to industry partners with an executive summary and a final group report. Full details of assessment criteria can be found on the unit of study outline for the shell unit you enrol in.

Global Intensive projects are run in the July intensive period through a mix of independent and structured learning.
For these projects students will spend 2 - 3 weeks in-country working in a collaborative learning space where you’ll have the opportunity to engage directly with industry partners and take part in relevant site visits and excursions. In the final week of the intensive, students are expected to conduct independent study where you'll write up your final assessments through self-directed learning as advised by your project supervisor.
The application process will include a merit-based application process, including an application submission and a group interview. You will need to be successful in this application before you can register for the project.
