Turing Scheme

The Turing scheme is the UK government’s global programme providing funding for study and work abroad placements.

The University of Exeter has been successful in its bid for Turing funding for the 2022-23 academic year.

Turing Scheme funding is available on a competitive basis for students going on a study or work abroad placement that is from 4 weeks up to a maximum of 12 months in duration to help them make the most of their time abroad.

As this funding is competitive, we will be requiring a Letter of Motivation from students. All information about how this application will work and what will make a competitive Letter of Motivation can be found on our SharePoint site here.

We have opened our application for Turing funding on the 1st August 2022, so in order to apply please fill out this form here. The deadline to submit your letter of motivation will be noon on Friday 30th September 2022.

This deadline has been set during term time to ensure all of those who do not have access to their Exeter email accounts during the summer has sufficient time to apply.  Applications will not be on a first come, first served basis.

 

When will I hear if I have been successful?

We will be informing you of the outcome of your application no later than Friday 14th October.

In the meantime, all students will be issued with paperwork to be completed for your placement, this needs to be filled in and returned regardless of the outcome of the funding application.

 

How much money could I receive?

Placements over nine weeks long will receive a cost-of-living grant equal to:

  • £380 per month (for Group 1 destinations)
  • £335 per month (for Group 2 and 3 destinations)

With students who meet the disadvantaged background uplift, receiving an additional £110 per month to their cost-of-living grant.

For more information about how much money per month you may be eligible for under the Turing Scheme please head to their website here.

 

Further Information

Please watch the recent Turing Scheme Webinar presented by the Global Opportunities Team for more information.

We will be sending any additional information and updates to Students as soon it becomes available to us. Students will continue to receive updates via email, on the SharePoint site and in the 2022-23 Teams site throughout the next academic year – please make sure in the first instance you are checking each of these regularly.
