In this respect the course was and is different to other academic courses because it has no fixed location - the project and visit periods can take place in any part of the country. The intensive life on the road gives graduates experience of working in different parts of the country and an opportunity to decide whether the itinerant life of a consultancy would suit them better than a fixed place of work. All course members become members of Wolfson College Cambridge, giving them a 'home' base. Although aimed at essentially graduates from numerate disciplines, successful experiments were also carried out to include arts graduates and careers teachers from secondary schools.

For many years the course was run jointly with the Universities of Durham and Lancaster, with ACDMM staff based in all three Universities. It is now run entirely from Cambridge.
