These funds are open to all postgraduate students at UAL including taught and research students: MA, MPhil, MRes, MSc, PGDip, PGCert, PhD and Early Career Researchers.
Proposals are encouraged to respond to one of UAL’s 4 identified research themes, enabling students to become active participants in UAL’s research culture. Projects must not be a part of an individual/groups assessed course work.
The regular Project Fund award is up to £300, with a deadline each term.
The EXTRA Project Fund awards of £500 - £1,000 are available only in the spring term, to enable more ambitious projects.
