The university is appealing for not-for-profit organisations to take part in the scheme.
“We’re asking organisations to offer a student a project – such as designing a website – that teases out elements of leadership and management,” a spokeswoman for the award said. “Charities might need a database installing but not have the administrative support or skills. They might also spot graduates they want to employ.”
About 45 students are expected to be included in the first intake when the award is launched next month.
