Our Aims

Founded in 2010, Durham University Consulting Society has three key aims:

  • To increase awareness of the consulting industry
  • To maximise the number of successful student job applications within consulting
  • To provide a network for students interested in a career within consulting

What We Do


Our events provide an opportunity to meet consulting professionals and other like-minded members. These events provide a great opportunity to meet those in the Industry who can tell you exactly what the life as a Consultant is like and to pick up those little tips that make the difference at interview. Drinks and food are often provided.

Our skills events provide opportunities to help you develop as a potential Consulting graduate. Facilitated by our Partner Firms and society alumni, these events help you to build a better understanding and improved set of skills to put you in the best position possible at the Assessment Centre.

Our events are advertised on our mailing list and our Facebook page.


Over 1,500 current students at Durham have subscribed to our newsletter. We use this to send updates on our Partner firms' recruitment activities as well as invites to our networking and case-study events. We're very proud to say that should you want to, it's very simple to unsubscribe from our newsletter (although when members leave the university many decide to transfer across to our alumni newsletter) so you don't need to worry about being forced to receive anything you don't want to.

Each year we travel to our Partner Firms' offices to see what it's really like on the inside. Last year the society took 20 students and visited PwC, Accenture and Capgemini in London.

The Consulting Group

The Society's Consulting Group is a unique setting for students to learn about management consulting while working on real projects for both local and national organisations to solve challenging business problems.

Through working in partnership with strategy experts both from an academic and professional background, the Consulting Group is able to make significant impact while benefiting from a rigorous learning process.
