Universities lack the resources to provide employability training to every single student and the means to track and demonstrate their progress.

Our solution is a cost effective SaaS platform, where universities can pay per student, to equip them with the skills, motivation, and network to solve the world’s biggest problems.

In our launch year we have already provided our quality training to 600+ students from 25 universities, with the help of our incredible clients and partners:

50% of graduate employers don’t think students have the requisite skills to enter the workforce, and as such consistently fail to reach their hiring targets.

By working with us to provide branded online training and unique on campus hackathons, you can solve this problem by up-skilling potential hires, and building meaningful relationships with the future leaders of your business.

On the 10th-12th February 2017, in partnership with Aston University and BSEEN, we ran an Internet of Things hackathon. The aim was to create new and exciting products and services that took advantage of smart devices, and the advent of Big Data.

The results included astonishing apps tackling social mobility, energy, and people flow within Birmingham City Centre.

We would recommend UniHack to other universities looking to engage students in a unique and different way. [It is] a great opportunity for students to understand and take part in the whole idea development process from start to finish.

In partnership with the South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Teesside Launchpad, on the 21st-22nd of October 2016, we brought together students for Teesside University's first ever health hackathon. Our student teams developed solutions to help improve NHS patient experiences, including the recently launched Health+ app.

The involvement of the local NHS trust and real possibility for ideas to be taken forward with the appropriate support.

Having run many student hackathons tackling the Sustainable Development Goals, we were approached to enhance grassroots social action on behalf of the UN and the SDGs. We brought together some of London’s most inspiring change makers, who ideated, iterated, and ultimately, built business and social enterprises that will reduce inequality (goal 10).

Thanks to UniHack for an incredible event. We learnt so much, met great people, and now am flying to New York to pitch our idea to the UN General Secretary! It’s an opportunity of a lifetime!

In addition to our university hackathon programme, we also run events for Further Education Institutions. In November 2016, we ran a series of simultaneous 50 minute workshops for the Year 10 students at Sevenoaks School. The session saw students tasked with developing solutions towards improving awareness, and tackling instances, of cyber-bullying.

With growing, conflicting pressure on spending and results, schools are looking outwards for help. Our day programmes enable immersive, experiential learning, while our platform provides a revolutionary new means to prepare students for university, apprenticeships, and the world of work.
