What is the 48 hours challenge?

The Universities of Birmingham and Nottingham are research-intensive institutions creating solutions to address some of the biggest challenges facing our world today.

Vital research into childhood cancer is taking place at both universities and we are looking for passionate and enthusiastic students from each institution to devise a creative plan to help raise awareness and money for this cause on campus.

Working in teams, with access to the academics who are conducting the research and experts in the fields of marketing and fundraising, you will put your plans in action with Nottingham and Birmingham teams competing to raise the most money for childhood cancer.

The weekend will be packed full of fundraising workshops, networking, team challenges and an opportunity to demonstrate your talents. You'll learn the basics, plan a campaign, and bid for money to support your fundraising.

This exclusive opportunity is perfect for students interested in working in the charity sector, business and marketing. 

When is the 48 hours challenge?

48 hours will take place on the last weekend in March, 24th - 26th, at the Impact Hub in Birmingham.

You will work in a team of six, competing with students from the University of Nottingham to raise the most money over the course of a chosen week in May. Participation during this week is compulsory.

All of your accommodation, travel and refreshments will be provided.
