Call for expressions of interest

Two calls are currently open: 

1. Call 1: open until mid-January 2022 for Ruskin modules running September 2022 onwards.
2. Call 2: open until 29 April 2022 for Ruskin modules running September 2023 onwards.

Our annual call for Expressions of Interest (EoI) for Ruskin modules is open! Do you have an idea for a module you have always wanted to run? Do you have a passion to inspire students to get involved? We want to hear from you! 

Framed by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and focused on wicked problems, Ruskin modules bring students together from different courses to proactively pursue intersections between disciplines for new creative ways to look at the issues. For inspiration have a look at the Ruskin modules for 2021. Drop us an email at for an initial chat.

Ruskin modules embrace diverse perspectives. We have a vibrant, innovative, positive and collaborative Ruskin modules community inclusive of colleagues from faculties and services - we would love to welcome you! 

Whilst we are keen to hear from new potential Module Leaders, we recognise that you may not want to run a module but would love to be involved. This year there are new ways you can be involved in-line with your ambitions and time (agreed with your Line Manager). 

In addition to proposals for new Ruskin modules, we are also looking for:

  • Specialist speakers contributing expertise or experience in a specific Ruskin module
  • Speakers for a special series of guest lectures available across all Ruskin modules to motivate and inspire students to think differently - think TED Talks
  • Colleagues to join our hive mind* (discussions to broaden the perspectives a Ruskin module might explore)
  • Team Members to contribute to the design and delivery of a Ruskin module*

Curious? Ask us to find out more at - we would love to hear from you!  

*particularly relating to themes of love, belonging, mental health, social enterprise, social justice and money.
