The Project Fund is intended to support a range of student-led projects and activities, encouraging collaboration between students from different courses and disciplines from across the University. All students from Undergraduate & Postgraduate programmes are eligible to apply for funding.
The Project Fund has been created to support any project that is ‘extra-curricular’. This means that your project must not directly influence or be submitted as part of any of your course work. Any artefact, events or activity must not form part of any assessment or any work submitted to your course.
WHAT KIND OF PROJECTS
CAN I GET FUNDING FOR?
If you've got an idea, there really are no limits to what the Project Fund can support. Maybe you want to host your own gig or exhibition but you're struggling to get the funding together for the venue hire? Maybe you and your course mates would love to produce a zine but you're not sure how to fund getting it printed? You might even want some support in setting up a small business or creative side hustle!
Got a project but want to run it past us first?
