The deadline for Students as Co-creators applications has been extended, so you now have until 27 November 2015 to get your team's application to us.

Lots of great ideas for change were put forward at the student-led event Innovate! Co-create! on Wednesday 14 October. The event showcased how the University has been working in partnership with students.

A shortlist of ideas has been created and we have extended the deadline for students to join a Students as Co-creators project team to 27 November 2015. 

Each faculty will run two Students as Co-creators projects this academic year, with students and academics working as partners to research ideas for improving your learning experience. Taking part will allow you to gain skills that will stand out on your CV, as well as help you develop your project and time management skills. The selected projects will be funded and students will receive a bursary on completion of their final report and recommendations.

How to get involved

If you have an idea and have got your team together, submit your application on our Students as co-creators Google site, where you'll also find more details on the initiative.

If you'd like to join an existing team, you can check out the project submissions and sign up via our Google form.
