So what exactly is Consulting? Good question, a lot of us were asking the same thing when coming across this society. You get to provide advice to clients across a broad range of industries.
Still vague, right? There are honestly infinite opportunities out there - from Management & Strategy Consulting to Tech or even Environmental Consulting. No matter what your subject background is, there will be a place that needs your skills in the Consulting industry.
We put on company presentations with external firms like Capgemini, BCG, and Deloitte, and keep you informed about any external webinars happening in this socially distanced term. We aim to invite speakers that are relatable and will inspire you with their careers. You will be able to engage with our speakers via Q&A sessions as well.
To keep up with our events, follow us on Instagram @ucl.consulting.
In addition, we have a Tech Division, rebranded ‘Consulting Society Spark’ for this year, that brings you all the relevant Tech Consulting events and related initiatives. We aim to reflect our members’ diverse interests and degrees in our events so keep an eye out for out for issues like Corporate Sustainability, Life Sciences Consulting and more subject specific events!
To give you practical experience, we’ve been sourcing projects ranging from start-ups to charities, and partnering with mentors from consultancies where you can apply to be a student consultant.
In 2020/21 we had 9 projects, 72 student Consultants and mentors from BCG, EY, Deloitte, Simon Kucher & Partners and more.
Our Case Study & Skills Workshops
We aim to build your application and on the job skills by hosting CV, cover letter and interview prep workshops, as well as digital skills seminars with our external partners. As you’ll soon find out, solving cases will become very important on your path to a Consulting career, so we’ve launched regular case study workshops and as well as a forum group on Facebook where you can meet fellow members to practise with.
Educational Social Media Posts
On our Instagram @ucl.consulting we give you weekly Consulting related content to help you with your application and improve your overall Commercial awareness.
We understand how hard it is to gather up to date resources and prepare for application season. This year, we are going to be sending our members a constant stream of resources – whether it's from our events, our partners, or our committee. We created a comprehensive 124 paged Guide to Consulting over the Summer. Get your FREE copy here: https://forms.gle/ozUaGERpwVwJMfKA9
