Welcome to the Application Form page for our next call for year-long Incubator projects for the 2021/22 academic year.

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on the 1st April. We expect to be able to communicate outcomes by 20th April. Successful projects will be funded from 1st August 2021 to 31st July 2022 - there is no suggested figure of funding, but instead, please submit what you feel is required to make your project successful.

For this call, we are asking applicants to focus their project applications around the following three themes:

Building on our experiences of educating over the last twelve months and with a focus on collaborations, this theme asks for projects that pilot and evaluate ways of supporting students to engage internationally as part of their programmes.

This theme is aligned with the University agenda to create collaborative international programmes.

Collaborations on this theme might include those with educators, research partners, community organisations, and/or employers abroad.

This theme encompasses projects seeking ‘Success for All’ students; this might include projects piloting and evaluating inclusive or decolonised curricula, and/or a means for supporting non-traditional students and closing attainment gaps.

It is crucial that these projects foster partnerships with students, the Guild, and existing groups on campus, involving them in all stages of their project.

This theme will ask people to take what was learned from the increase in online learning and pilot and evaluate how these approaches can be best applied to blended delivery and assessment as we return to campus.

Towards the end of 2019/20 it was necessary for exams and assessments to be online. In 2020/21 we have needed to adapt curricula and create resources to facilitate students learning within COVID-19 restrictions. As these restrictions are reduced and our campuses become more available as teaching spaces, educators will need to make decisions about how ways of teaching during COVID-19 should inform education during 2021/22 and beyond.

It will be crucial for these projects to collaborate with students, recent graduates, and industry/employer stakeholders.

To help you write your application, we have collated a list of resources below that will help you to research and frame your projects.

We also held two application workshops in February. If you would like a copy of the presentation and access to recordings of these sessions, please email us at

Please also get in contact if you have any questions before completing the application form.
