The College of Social Science has set aside a total of £100,000 in its budget to the Research Development Fund (RDF) for the academic year 2012/2013.
We are pleased to announce that the College is now able to provide funding for tea, coffee and biscuits to support initiatives such as reading/ discussion groups or groups where students present their work to each other, where these are organized on the students' initiative. This is in order that we support activities which are ongoing in some departments and Schools (Economics, Education and Management), and encourage other initiatives of this kind.
