About

Connecting business and students for great project partnerships.

ProjectMatch is an innovative new platform helping MSc students to partner with business for their dissertations, and engage in real life, impactful projects that directly support their business partners. We support businesses to understand the value of these students’ skills, the benefit of working with universities and in utilising the knowledge and research of the occupational psychology sector.

Our Mission: To Make Great Connections

Our ongoing mission is to be the bridge, connecting business needs with student skills and furthering that knowledge exchange that benefits us all.

By partnering with a postgraduate researcher, businesses looking to investigate topics concerning their working environment, employees or client interactions can have a tailored project conducted in a matter of months. Project areas cover the whole range of business psychology from training and development, employee engagement and well-being, diversity and inclusion, or anything else that involves your people!
