Funding for staff and student projects

Students and staff can apply for up to £500 of funding for projects that support a new partnership between the University and the Students’ Association.

The two organisations recently launched the first Student Partnership Agreement, which sets out how they can work together more effectively to further improve learning and teaching.

Senior Vice-Principal Professor Charlie Jeffery has made funds available for students and staff to submit bids to undertake work that supports the partnership agreement.

Partnership projects

The projects must involve both students and staff and be linked to one of the partnership agreement key themes.

The key themes – identified from student and staff feedback – which the University and the Students’ Association will focus on during the 2017-18 academic year are:

  • Student voice
  • Academic support
  • Promoting positive mental health and wellbeing.

The application form for submitting bids can be downloaded here:
