Vice-Chancellor's & Student Development Fund

We truly believe that studying at QMU is not just about getting an education, but it is about developing potential in a much wider sense. Often, it is the co-curricular and extracurricular activities that help our students develop essential life skills and shape their future careers. 

We are committed to supporting our students, helping them make the most of the opportunities available to them and ensuring that they have the best possible experience as a QMU student.

The Vice-Chancellor's & Student Development Fund makes sure that all of our students have the opportunity to be involved in projects and initiatives that reflect their enthusiasm and creativity. These projects and initiatives can be based in the UK or overseas, giving our students the opportunity to experience different countries and cultures. 


Case Study

Fourth year film and media student Roxana Capris received support from the Vice-Chancellor's & Student Development Fund in 2022 to produce a short documentary about her grandmother’s young life in communist Romania. 

Roxana explains, "I have always been fascinated by my grandmother’s stories. And, thanks to the generous support I received I was able to make this documentary possible."

As a filmmaker, Roxana was pleased to use this experience as an opportunity to enhance her skills, and was delighted when her documentary was selected for the New Visions Short Film Competition at the 2022 Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Check out Roxana's article in our latest edition of QMYOU, were she shares more details of her documentary.  


Case Study

Physiotherapy graduate Ellen Clark, competed at last year’s RS200 National Championships at Hayling Island Sailing Club thanks to the support she received from the Vice-Chancellor's & Student Development Fund. 

Ellen says, "I’m so grateful to QMU for recognising and supporting something that’s an important part of my life out with the classroom."

Not only has Ellen's passion for sailing helped with her own health and wellbeing throughout her time at university, it’s strengthened her understanding of the connection between physical therapy and mental health.

Ellen gives an insight into her experience of sailing and her time at the competition in our latest edition of QMYOU. 


Help us ensure our students benefit from opportunities that they may otherwise miss out on.
