Commissioning a Project

The Oxford academic year starts in October and ends in June. The year is split into three terms: Michaelmas (Oct - Dec), Hilary (Jan - Mar), and Trinity (Apr - Jun).

Our project cycle mirrors the Oxford term structure. Projects are procured before the start of each term. On average, projects last eight weeks.

We are now sourcing for projects for Michaelmas Term. If you are interested in working with OSG, please contact us at

Our consultants have put in over 20,000 consultant hours and have completed more than 80 projects for firms and organisations with a collective worth of $640 billion.

Our client relationships last well beyond the projects we do. OSG maintains strong links with all our clients, who gain unparalleled access to some of Oxford's top strategic thinkers. A few of our clients are featured below.


Our Work


In Michaelmas Term 2018, six OSG consultants advised a well-known American freelancer marketplace on how to expand horizontally into an adjacent market segment, targeted at freelancer agencies.


In Hilary Term 2019, OSG developed a blue-sky revenue growth strategy for a multinational telecoms company. OSG also completed a B2B revenue growth study for a diversified Asian unicorn start-up in the transport sector.


Over the course of a two-term engagement in 2018, OSG advised a leading conglomerate on the possibility of acquiring a leading Premier League football club. This involved analysing factors affecting the window of opportunity while also developing a ranged valuation model for the client.


In recent years, OSG has completed a number of marketing and consumer insights studies for returning clients, most notably several FTSE 100 FMCGs. These have ranged from student snacking habits and supermarket product placement through to differentiating oral care in a crowded UK market.


In Hilary Term 2019, OSG collaborated with an international risk management and public services consultancy to research anti-slavery initiatives, with a specific focus on how to combat human trafficking in Nigeria’s Edo State.
