Student Knowledge Exchange

Supporting Keele and University of Birmingham students into internships, consultancies, enterprise challenges, bootcamps and to start their own business.

Led by Keele University, in partnership with the University of Birmingham, the Student Knowledge Exchange project has been awarded funding from the Office for Students and Research England to develop best practice and expertise in the delivery of knowledge exchange activity.

The project will offer civic internships, student consultancies, virtual placements, international opportunities, enterprise challenges, and curriculum design that embeds student knowledge exchange. The project will also propose an evaluative framework tool to analyse the impact of student-led knowledge exchanges.
