Students Staff

Consultancy

This page provides information about consultancy for staff at our University. If you're from an external business interested in learning more, please read our consultancy information for businesses.

Our University supports and promotes academic consultancy with external organisations, in order to demonstrate the impact of research, to enable us to develop relationships with external organisations, and to provide an additional revenue stream.

Our teams can help negotiate the consultancy fee, make contractual arrangements and ensure that any intellectual property arising from the work is properly protected. By taking on consultancy work through university channels, you are also provided with the appropriate professional indemnity insurance.

Benefits of consultancy

  • Financial and career benefits for staff - consultancy helps to augment the salaries of individual staff, stimulate personal development and broaden careers, and acts as a useful incentive to recruit and retain staff.
  • Benefits for students - consultancy can provide placement and graduate career opportunities for students.
  • Extending the research and knowledge base of our University - consultancy often leads to other forms of partnership, including research projects, and increases both the commercial awareness of researchers and the users' awareness of the University's expertise.
  • Benefits for teaching - consultancy can result in current, relevant case study material that enhances teaching.
  • Benefits for our University - consultancy provides useful contacts and marketing opportunities, and enhances the reputation of individual staff, departments and the University.
