If you’re a current student and have a great idea for a project that could make a real difference, why not apply for funding for help to do something amazing? You can apply for up to £2,000 to support you as an individual or as part of a group project.

The University has committed £140,000 of philanthropic funding over three years to offer you, our students, to help you deliver projects that give you new opportunities. You might want to increase your access to enterprise and work-related learning opportunities or undertake a learning experience outside of the UK such as an exchange or field trip. The project must be in addition to your standard student experience or programme of study, and must enhance your development and be inspirational to other students.

The Students’ Union is able to help you develop your application. Drop into one of our sessions in Studio 1, Students’ Union to find out more.
