Eight out of 10 postgraduate students taking a taught course in the UK report continued satisfaction with the experience over a five-year period.But a survey of more than 70,000 postgraduates across 85 higher education institutions who responded to the Advance HE Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) highlights for the first time areas where institutions could do better still to boost satisfaction levels.
The next government should adopt policies on graduate employment that reflect a less simplistic outlook than the current regime, argues Tristram Hooley, Chief Research Officer at the Institute of Student Employers, which has just published its manifesto wish list.
Research England is launching a new fund in autumn 2018 to support the scaling up of existing, strategically-significant, internationally-collaborative research relationships between English Higher Education Institutions and universities and research organisations outside of the UK.
A maximum of £500,000 can be applied for through the £4m International Investment Initiative. Awards must be led by an English HEI in collaboration with a minimum of one international university or research organisation.
The primary use of the I3 awards must be for scaling up international research collaboration at the institutional or organisational unit level (e.g. faculty). The scheme will provide up to five years of funding which will be matched by bidders through cash or in-kind contributions.
Supported activities must not be eligible for funding through the Global Challenges Research Fund or the Newton Fund. The scheme will not directly support individual research projects.
Further details on the application and assessment processes, eligibility and funding criteria, and participating organisation co-investment requirements will be available on the Research England website in autumn 2018.
