The deadline for proposals for SPUR and SPUR SoTL projects to take place over the summer of 2020 has now passed.

If you have submitted a proposal to either scheme we will be in touch in due course.


The SPUR scheme offers twelve bursaries for NTU students to collaborate with staff on cutting-edge research projects. It provides staff with the opportunity to mentor and receive assistance from an undergraduate student and enables students to gain research experience and contribute to the production of new knowledge in their field. SPUR projects also feed back into the curriculum to benefit the wider student community.


Two additional bursaries are available for research projects related to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Colleagues may propose projects for staff and students to collaborate on research into learning and teaching which demonstrates the potential to enhance the student academic experience.
