Jisc Student Ideas Competition 2018

Jisc’s annual student ideas competition is designed to find innovative technology solutions to improve education, research and student life, often based on their own experiences. This year Jisc are looking for technology ideas from students that would make life better for learners, teaching staff and researchers in the UK. Previous years’ entrants aimed to solve big problems in the education sector that the students had experienced themselves. The competition is part of their edtech launchpad, which supports students, startups and companies to develop new edtech ideas.

About the competition

The student ideas competition is open to all students over 16 years from sixth forms, further education colleges and universities. They are encouraging students to tell them about their ideas on how to improve life in education using technology. Entries should include the idea and a short video and can be submitted via Hubbub, their competition platform.

Voting, shortlisting and final selection

Once the ideas have been submitted, anyone can vote. The submissions with the most votes will form a shortlist to be considered by the Jisc selection panel. Fifteen teams will then be selected to attend a design sprint in early August 2018 and receive £2,000 per team in prize money.
