The International Mobility Team are now welcoming applications from students who are or have been studying or working abroad in the 2021-22 academic year.*
The Turing Scheme was launched in 2021 by the UK government as an alternative funding source to support international study and work placements following the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union.
In order to be eligible to apply for the University of Bath’s 2021-22 Turing Scheme funding, students must:
- be studying or working in person at their placement (students undertaking remote and virtual opportunities are not eligible)
- not be in receipt of the Erasmus+ grant
- be undertaking (or have undertaken) a placement lasting between 4 weeks and 12 months
- be undertaking (or have undertaken) a placement between 1st September 2021 and 31st August 2022. Activities outside of these dates are not eligible for funding.
Applications are open to students of all nationalities and funding is available for both study and work placements. As this is a new scheme and there is limited funding, we are unable to guarantee whether double mobilities (two separate mobilities) will be able to be funded.
Our aim is to support as many study and work placements as possible, however, please note that funding is limited and is not guaranteed. An application to the scheme does not guarantee that you will successfully receive funding, even if your application fits all the eligibility criteria listed above.
Please see our FAQs page for information about eligibility.
If you are interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application form. In the email, please provide a brief overview of your placement including university or organisation, country, and dates of placement.
*if you have been on a trip abroad with your course that isn't a study or work placement, but fits the other criteria, get in touch to see whether you could apply for funding.
