Student Professional Practice Fund

The Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries (CCI) believes in showcasing students’ work and supporting students’ professional practice and has developed a fund to support these activities.

If you are a group of CCI students organising an exhibition, event, theatre production, installation, musical gig or similar you might consider applying for financial support.

An award of up to £1500 can be applied for per activity. The requested amount must be match funded through external sponsorship and/or fundraising activities.

For example, if the total activity budget is £3000 you can request £1500 funding, and you will be required to match this amount with £1500 from other sources, including your own funds.


The 2015-16 CCI Student Professional Practice Fund will be run in two rounds. The deadline for Round 1 is 20th November 2015 and the deadline for Round 2 will be 11th March 2016.

Application Process

The application involves two stages:

  • Stage 1: Applicants submit an application by the advertised deadline
  • Stage 2: Selected applicants will be required to make a ‘pitch’ to an evaluation panel in support of their initial application.
