Bolster your CV and be in with the chance of winning £500

Would you like to bolster your CV and be in with a chance to win £500? You should enter our multi-disciplinary Designathon, where you will be asked to design, evaluate or pitch a social media-based health or wellbeing resource.

This Designathon will bring together students from across a range of disciplines to design an online resource for a specific group of people (e.g. those with dementia, young people with mental health problems, cancer screening populations and those at high risk of cardiovascular disease) in response to the increasing demands faced by the health sector.

The initiative will take place over semester two and students will work within multidisciplinary groups in an introductory workshop, producing a design pitch and then presenting to industry.

As well as the obvious benefits of working on a creative brief with students from other disciplines and enhancing your CV, the winning group will be awarded £500 prize and the potential to develop their ideas further.

The Designathon is open to ANY student who thinks they have something to offer. You will need to be free on the following dates:

  • Thursday 9th March from 2pm
  • Thursday 23rd March from 3pm
  • First week of June (one day to be confirmed)
