About the UEDF

The University Education Development Fund provides grants to support the development of new approaches to learning and teaching, and to enable their dissemination across the University. Chaired by the PVC Education, the fund offers a fantastic opportunity to propose and deliver projects with real benefit to student education.

The fund has two strands:
Responsive projects:Strategic projects:

£2500. Projects can be specifically focussed within an individual academic unit, or across multiple areas as appropriate to the project.
