UCE Disrupt

Virtually Together is an entirely online Challenge for students, working together in teams, to come up with concepts focused on creating social connections in an increasingly isolated world. 

The Challenge is run over two weeks with flexible timing to fit in and around your schedule. You will get coaching from UCE staff and mentoring from experts. It is a perfect opportunity to meet some new people, hone your skills, build your CV and experience some new ways of working.

On the final day of Virtually Together, your team will pitch your concept to a panel of judges and industry experts. The winning teams will get a share of the $2,500 cash prize pool as well as support from UCE to turn your ideas into reality!
