The application window for Turing Scheme funding for the academic year 2022/23 is now closed.
Details of how to apply for funding for 2023/24 will be released in early autumn 2023
The funding available is extremely limited and not everybody who applies will be successful.
In order to be eligible to apply for the University of Bath’s 2022/23 Turing Scheme funding, you must:
be registered at the University of Bath and enrolled in studies leading to a recognised degree (all levels of study, up to and including the level of doctorate, are eligible)
be studying or working in person at your placement abroad (remote and virtual activities are not eligible for Turing Scheme funding)
be aged 18+ on departure
not be a national citizen of the destination country (e.g. if you are a Spanish national completing a placement in Madrid you will not qualify for funding)
not be already in receipt of funding from a different source to cover specific activity costs (e.g. Erasmus+, BRID fund, Mitacs, etc.), as this would result in double funding
not have already received Turing Scheme funding in the 2022/23 academic year
be undertaking a study exchange or work placement abroad lasting between 4 weeks and 12 months
be undertaking a study exchange or work placement abroad between 1st September 2022 and 31st August 2023 (any dates outside this window are not eligible for funding)
You do not need to be a UK national to be eligible to apply for the Scheme.
Moreover, if you previously applied for Turing Scheme funding for the 2022/23 academic year during the first call and were unsuccessful, you qualify to apply again. Please note that there is no guarantee that your application will be successful this time.
Due to funding being limited, this academic year we cannot fund double mobilities (i.e. two separate mobilities).
Funding is limited and is NOT guaranteed for all students. You must NOT rely on Turing Scheme funding, as 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.
In the event of demand from students exceeding the limited amount of funding that we have left, a process of prioritising applications will be implemented when allocating grants. As part of our decision process, we may also take into account if you:
are from a disadvantaged background
have special educational needs and/or disabilities
have a period abroad as a compulsory part of your degree programme
are completing an unpaid or lower paid placement
There is no right of appeal and the University's decision is final in relation to your eligibility for an award.
For successful applicants, the funding provided is a contribution and is unlikely to cover the full costs of a mobility abroad, as shown in the table below:
|Turing Scheme Grant Rates for 2022/23
|Mobilities with a total duration of 4 to 8 weeks
||2 & 3
|Mobilities with a total duration of 9 weeks to 12 months
||2 & 3
Please note that mobilities lasting 9 weeks to 12 months will receive the rates identified for this category for the full duration of the mobility and not the higher rates for the initial period of eight weeks.
Please check the Cost of Living Groups webpage for a full list of countries.
If successful, we will process your funding as soon as possible upon receipt of all required documentation. The issuing of funds will be split into two instalments, and it will not be immediate. Please be aware that you will not receive your first instalment until after the start of your mobility abroad and only once you have provided all the necessary arrival paperwork.
If your application is successful, you meet the disadvantaged background criteria and can provide evidence for this, you will receive an additional £110 per month to your cost-of-living grant, as well as distance-based funding to contribute towards the direct costs of travel for a placement.
Moreover, if you consider yourself to have any special educational needs or a disability, please highlight this in your application form and let the Mobility Team know at email@example.com, as you may be able to access further funding, however this is extremely limited and not guaranteed. Please be reminded, however, that you will need to provide suitable evidence as proof of your status.
