Do you have a business issue or challenge that you think our students could help you work towards solving?

A live brief is an opportunity for you to present our students with a real-world problem and challenge them to come up with a fresh and creative solution or ideas that could benefit your organisation.

How will my organisation benefit?

How do students benefit?

How do live briefs work?

What is the commitment?

Is there a cost?

What does the life brief need to be about?

How will I know that my live brief idea is suitable for ARU students?

How many hours do I have to commit to a live brief?

What type of work/output can the students be expected to complete as part of a live brief?

Will I be expected to mark the students' work?

What type of professional feedback is expected from me?

Do I always have to come to the campus?

If I commit to a live brief this year will I be expected to keep coming back?

What if my live brief involves revealing sensitive or confidential information about my organisation?

Who should I contact if I run into unexpected difficulties?

What happens if my circumstances change and I am no longer able to deliver the live brief?
