What is the Student Led Activity Fund?


The Student Led Activity Fund was created in 2017/18 and provides students financial support to deliver their own Development Weeks activities and events.
Students, in groups of 2 - 6, can submit an activity proposal and apply for up to £750. Activities can be creative and innovative or practical and insightful, and where possible should be based around at least one of the four Degree Plus themes of: global, citizenship, personal and career development and work experience. It's up to you how you spend the funding and the nature of your event. We want students to take ownership of Development Weeks and make their own.

Why run a student led event in Development Weeks?


Running your own Development Weeks activities will:
- allow you to demonstrate your knowledge and share your passions
- enhance your confidence
- increase your communication, team work, organisation and leadership skills in a safe and supportive environment
- enable you to gain Degree Plus Route A accreditation

How do I apply?


To apply for funding, students must submit an activity proposal form before the closing date. Each Student Led Activity Fund proposal will then be reviewed and assessed and applications will either be approved or require further development. Applicants will be made aware of the outcome of their application and the funds will be released in a number of stages. After the event, students will be required to submit the appropriate paperwork and write a blog post.
