    Student Experience Fund


    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 £150,000 of philanthropic funding to offer our students to help you deliver projects that give you new  opportunities. It may be to increase your access to enterprise and work-related learning opportunities or the chance to undertake a learning experience outside of the UK such as an exchange or field trip. The project must be additional to your standard student experience or programme of study, enhance development and be inspirational to other students.

    Applications for the student experience fund for the 2018-19 academic year opened in September.

    There are two rounds of applications:

    • Stage one is now open for applications; deadline is 31 March.
    • Stage two opens on 3 April and closes on 31 May.
