Be part of our FLUX team and represent the University of Cumbria at this year’s competition which takes place on 23 and 24 March 2015.

FLUX is the higher education sector’s largest annual competition to encourage entrepreneurship and bridge the gap between education and work with each team member developing transferrable skills to help them in the world of work after graduation!

The business-focused competition has been running for seven years and consists of teams of six students from universities across the country. Each year FLUX attracts sponsorship from industry who set the challenge for the students to compete against – Can you work as part of a team of six to provide the solution to a ‘real’ challenge and present your ideas to the panel of judges?
On 23 and 24 March 2015, around 100 of the top students in the UK will travel to Lancaster (UoC will provide our team with accommodation if needed) to compete in this Apprentice style Challenge which will be judged by a panel of judges.

Our successful team will benefit from some additional training and development sessions before going head to head with others from across the country. In addition, during the competition there is support available from local Business Mentors and Advisers.
This competition is open to all students from all subject areas so you don’t need to have studied business to apply.
The winning team will scoop the grand prize of £1200, with three runners up winning £600
