University of Bath call for charity partners - Sign-Ups Now Open

Updated: Mar 29


UPDATE: The University of Bath has now reached a sufficient number of charity partner sign-ups. Thank you for your interest.


Every year postgraduate students from the School of Management at University of Bath can opt for the Practice Track, in place of a traditional dissertation. As part of this programme, teams of students work with a local charity to devise and deliver a fund and/or awareness raising project, known as the Action Project.


“We were really pleased to be involved with the Action Track project for a third year. The groups we worked with were so enthusiastic and passionate about raising awareness and funds for people affected by dementia and both groups executed their plans brilliantly.” Alzheimer’s Society


Our charity partners return year on year, attracted by the talent and enthusiasm of our international cohort. This year we have an unprecedented number of students signed up for Practice Track so we’re looking for additional charities to work with us.


“We’ve always found practice track students to be professional, engaged and enthusiastic. This year their project delivered fresh ideas for us as to how we engage with audiences on social media. The team also went above and beyond by volunteering for the charity in their own time. It’s always a pleasure to work with students from the university.” Bath Foodcycle


The launch event will take place on 28 April and students then have 1 week to agree an overall project scope with you, before coming up with a more detailed plan over the following weeks. The project itself needs to be delivered between 17 July and 14 August.


“I loved the experience of working with a group of passionate, creative and hard working students. The team were a fantastic additional resource for our small charity and together they achieved real and meaningful impact.” The Paul Hodges Trust


Last year, students raised almost £10,000 for local charities and generated awareness of a wide range of causes through social media campaigns and other online activity.
