UCL Faculty of Arts & Humanities


Education Funding Opportunities

The UCL Centre for Humanities Education provides funding for education-related projects across the Faculty.

The Centre currently has five work streams (technology, assessment, inclusivity, interdisciplinarity, Languages) through which faculty-wide activities and projects are funded. Each stream has a lead responsible for encouraging, coordinating, and promoting activities.

All staff and students in the UCL Arts & Humanities are invited to contact the Director of the Centre for Humanities Education in the first place if they have an idea for an Education-related project that could be funded through the Centre. We particularly encourage expressions of interest and applications from colleagues in teaching-focussed positions as well as Education-focused Professional and Technical services staff.  We will be able provide a small amount of funds for a selection of projects each year beyond activities specifically related to the work streams.

Potential activity funding from the centre can support

  • Set up a collaborative workshop with colleagues from other departments who teach similar disciplines.
  • Visit another institution to learn about innovative pedagogical practices .
  • Invite a leading practitioner or resercher in humanities education to give a talk or workshop.
