What Students Really Want – £5k Funding to Improve Student Life

At Jisc, we strongly believe that students should have a prime role in developing novel uses of technology to improve their experience at college or university.

That’s why last year we ran a competition – the Summer of Student Innovation - designed with RLUKRUGITSCONUL and UCISA as part of a co-design approach to innovation within UK education. 21 projects were successfully funded and supported to develop their ideas. We continue to work with six projects to help develop them and explore the possibility of offering them as a shared service for the whole sector.

The Summer of Student Innovation 2014 competition is running again this year and £5k is available for each successful student idea. Students have until the end of May to submit their entries and with our help attract votes.

If you are interested in applying and would like to discuss your idea, please get in touch with the Academic Development Directorate at ADD@soas.ac.uk to arrange an appointment.
