HEA Professor Sir Ron Cooke International Scholarship Scheme

The International Scholarship Scheme benefits the UK Higher Education sector by exploring interesting, challenging and innovative international learning and teaching practice and policy ideas, and examining the possibility of their implementation within the UK.

The scheme supports individuals in the sector to undertake specific investigations outside of the UK to explore innovative examples of teaching excellence and learning and teaching policies, translate these for a UK audience, test them within a UK setting and to make a difference for UK student learning. Proposed scholarships and associated study visits must have a clear benefit to either learning and teaching practice or to higher education policy within the UK.

The focus for our forthcoming call is International Scholarships exploring:

  • Innovative examples of international teaching excellence and
  • Innovative policies describing funding models within HE and their impact on the student learning experience.

Call information

  • The next call will be open from 3 September 2013 - 20 Jan 2014.
