Teaching Development and Language Enhancement Grant

UGC attaches great importance to quality teaching and learning. Annual provision of Teaching Development Grant and Language Enhancement Grant had been allocated to the UGC-funded universities since 1994 and 1991 respectively to enhance teaching quality and language proficiency of students.

These two grants have been combined as the Teaching Development and Language Enhancement Grant (TDLEG) since the 2016-19 triennium, 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.

In 2019-22 triennium, the amount of TDLEG has increased by $268.4 million to $781.2 million (around $260.4 million per annum) as compared with the previous triennium. This enables universities to focus their efforts in completing the funded projects under the previous UGC funding schemes and support the universities to continue to implement the meaningful initiatives from the previous funding schemes.
