Teaching Development and Language Enhancement Grant

UGC attaches great importance to quality teaching and learning, and had allocated the Teaching Development Grant (TDG) and Language Enhancement Grant (LEG) to UGC-funded institutions since 1994 and 1991 respectively to encourage institutions to adopt innovative approaches to teaching, improve the quality of the learning environment, and support their provision of language enhancement activities.

In the 2016-19 triennium, TDG and LEG have been combined as the Teaching Development and Language Enhancement Grant (TDLEG), as a continuing signal of UGC's recognition of the importance of both elements of teaching development and language enhancement, while allowing universities the flexibility to decide on the best use of the funding having regard to institutional needs. A total of $512.8 million has been earmarked for TDLEG in the 2016-19 triennium.
