Edinburgh Napier University is giving students the chance to win £3000 to put towards their postgraduate degree.
The 'Open Minds' competition asks existing or potential students to submit their ideas on how to enhance student experiences at Napier university based on three key areas of academia, technology and social life.
The best ideas will be chosen by a panel of judges made up of lecturers from the faculties of Business, Health, Life and Social Sciences, and Engineering, Computing and Creative Industries at Napier university and the winning entry will win £3000 to put towards their postgraduate degree.
The judges will also ask the general public to pick their favourite submission in a separate competition and the idea that proves to be most popular with voters will win a Kindle e-reader and a £100 Amazon voucher.
Paola Renucci who is a judge on the panel said: “This is a chance to make a positive difference to student life and we’re looking for creative and innovative ideas to help us do this.”
However, it is not guaranteed that the winning ideas will actually be implemented by Napier University. A university spokesperson told The Journal: “We don’t say that ideas will be implemented so prospective student submitting are not under that impression. It really is just looking for ideas at this stage. If the idea has real potential and is feasible the university may well look in to it further”
Students can enter the competition by submitting a 100 word sumamary of their idea along with any supporting material by 1 June. The results will be announced on 2 July.
