International Teaching Excellence Bursaries

The UCL International Teaching Excellence Bursaries form part of a drive to expand UCL’s profile as an internationally recognised centre of teaching excellence. A key aspect of achieving this aim is increasing international teaching and learning exchanges that advance collaborative innovations and deepen strategic links with overseas partners in a range of regions around the world. These links will support the collaborative development of innovative teaching and learning resources that can be shared across the wider UCL community.

The bursary is open to people at UCL and those in overseas institutions who wish to visit UCL as part of this scheme.

The deadline for applications has now passed; information about the next round will be added here once it is available. Guidelines, frequently asked questions and examples of previous uses of International Teaching Excellence Bursaries can be found below.
