Do you want to run a project?


The Students’ Union provides funding for students who want to organise projects and events via our Student Project Fund. Projects are a great way to bring your ideas and energy together to host events that benefit students at ARU London, and can help you develop transferable skills in:

  • Project Management 
  • Teamwork
  • Marketing
  • Communication

Students can set up a Project Group with the support of at least 2 other students, and your project must have a positive impact on ARUL students.  

You can always talk to a coordinator or officer to see where they can help with your project as well!

Our full Terms and Conditions

What happens next? 
Once you have submitted your project, it will be considered by a funding commitee of SU staff, who will get back to the project leader within 2 weeks.

When considering applications, please include as much detail as possible in your application. We will need details about what your event will involve, who will be attending and when it will be taking place. You should also provide links to specific items you want to purchase. 


How does funding work?
You can submit a project and get funding all year round, but you will only have 2 months to spend it. Purchases can either be made by a student and then reimbursed by the SU, or we can make purchases for you (so you don't end up out of pocket). We recommend speaking to a coordinator before making any purchases!

 
Funding Terms and Conditions

  • Students hoping to run events on or off campus must provide the SU with a risk assessment. Templates can be provided by the SU Coordinators for those who do not have one.
  • Students must provide a detailed budget breakdown for the funding requested.
  • A meeting with our SU staff team may be required for larger funding requests. We will contact the group leader to set this up if it is necessary.
  • No reimbursements can be paid without proof of purchase. Only when the SU receive this proof of purchase will the approved funding amount be processed to your account.
  • If there is a requirement to pay for a service, the SU will need an invoice from the company or individual. This must have a UK bank account and be compliant with HMRC regulations. The payment will then be made by the SU.
  • Anything that the SU funds and promotes must be accessible and open to all students at ARU London. This means that any student is welcome to attend if they want to. The SU exists to support all students, therefore anything that we support and fund must reflect that.
  • All items purchased through the Project Group Fund belong to ARU London Students’ Union.
  • Students must clean up after the event and take down any promotional material.
  • Students must notify the SU if the event is cancelled.
  • Students must conduct themselves in a professional manner when participating in projects both on and off campus.
