Introducing the new University Education Development Fund

Do you have an idea that could have an impact on students’ learning or teaching across the university?

Did you know that there is central funding available to support both local and institution-wide initiatives and projects?

The new University Education Development Fund offers a fantastic opportunity to propose and deliver projects with real benefit to students’ education at Newcastle University.

Envisioned and chaired by the PVC Education Prof Suzanne Cholerton this fund will support a wide range of projects from across all campuses and is open to all staff to apply.

Proposed projects must align with and further the aims and key themes of the Education Strategy.

Funding is available of:

  • Up to £2500 for projects focused within an individual academic unit, or across multiple areas through the Responsive strand.
  • Up to £10,000 for projects with collaboration across academic units through the Strategic strand.

The fund was formerly known as the Innovation Fund, though do note some key changes to the criteria and process if you are interested in applying.
