15 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This module provides an opportunity for students to work on a team-based consultancy project for an external client. Students will apply the analytical tools and critical thinking skills they have gained to a 'real world problem'. Working in small teams, students produce a report for a client that deals with a problem of theory or practice relevant to the client's interests or activities. Projects are defined by clients, who provide the terms of reference to their assigned team of student consultants. The specific nature of projects varies but will relate to international development challenges with a particular urban dimension.
