Dissertations for Good for universities

Dissertations for Good is a platform connecting undergraduate and postgraduate university students across the UK with organisations that have important questions about environmental, economic or social sustainability.

Students turn their education into a force for social good by answering these real-world research questions through their dissertation, research project, or other self-directed learning.

Universities can purchase membership to gain access to additional benefits for their students (listed below). Non-academic departments of universities that have purchased membership can gain access to the living labs route. A representative from each member university and/or students’ union is also invited to take part in regular feedback calls, helping to shape the future direction and development of the programme.

Membership costs £500+VAT for one calendar year.
