Funding for your Teaching and Learning project

The University's Teaching and Learning funding schemes support the development of new and existing teaching and learning initiatives and projects, in alignment with the direction set out by the University Strategic Plan 2020-26.

The University Strategic Plan 2020-26 sets out four strategic principles which shape the University’s actions and guide its decision-making and prioritisation:

  • Principle 1: Community – putting our people first
  • Principle 2: Excellence – aspiring to the highest standards
  • Principle 3: Sustainability – managing our resources for today and tomorrow
  • Principle 4: Engaged University – impact beyond our campuses.

Project proposals should be aligned with these principles, since selection panels will bear them in mind when making their decisions.
