WIHEA Project Funding
WIHEA seeks to recognise, develop and embed outstanding academic practices that enhance student opportunities to 'learn beyond boundaries'. Our project funding aims to enable collaborative partnerships between staff and students to directly improve the learning experience. Proposals are invited for development and dissemination projects which result in guidance for departments, programme teams and individuals on six strategic priorities.
WIHEA Strategic Priorities
International Visiting Schemes
WIHEA funds two schemes which both aim to develop and embed internationally recognised outstanding practice by encouraging leading practitioners in teaching and pedagogical innovation across the world to share and engage with a wide cross-section of the University, providing staff and students the opportunity to challenge and engage in an international context. Follow this link for information on the two schemes.

Although, Leadership roles within funded projects are expected to be taken on by WIHEA Fellows, we warmly welcome colleagues and students from across the University to join or initiate bidding in collaboration with a WIHEA Fellow
Assessment of Proposals
Proposals will be individually assessed by the WIHEA Advisory Group to ensure they meet the required project criteria and to consider the impact and scalability of the project, along with how the project could be adopted in future modules/courses and made sustainable.
Project Proposals can be submitted at any point during the year, but please note that the Advisory Group meets four times a year to review proposals and the next meeting is on 4 December 2019.
For a proposal to be considered at the meeting, it should be submitted by 9am, Wednesday, 20 November 2019.
