School of Social and Political Science: Undergraduate study


Funding and Careers

As well as training sessions and workshops, we also provide financial and practical support to a range of student-led initiatives such as blogs, presentation forums and journals.  We can offer support to book venues, provide some financial assistance to cover running costs and refreshments and access to a range of marketing and promotional outlets.

If you have an idea that you would like to discuss, please contact the Student Development Office to set up a meeting.

One-off initiatives for Research students should be funded via the Student-led Special Projects Grants (PhD students).

Taught students should be funded via the Masters Student Initiative Grants
