Turing Scheme funding for 22/23
The University of Brighton has been awarded funding to support students on overseas work or study placements in academic year 2022-2023.
Benefits of overseas travel
The benefits of working or studying overseas are many and varied. The chance to learn about other cultures and gain an international mindset. The opportunity to really stand out from the crowd. Or just for the adventure! You will grow and develop personally, and it may just give you the edge in your future job search!
- The minimum duration of an overseas mobility is 4 weeks and it can take place at any point up until 31 August 2023
- You can travel anywhere overseas unless it is advised against by the FCDO
- All levels and nationalities are eligible
- Work, study, training and volunteering are all possible under the scheme, although you must have a registered host organisation. It does not need to be related to your course.
Successful applicants can expect to receive between £85 and £163 per week, depending on duration, locations and whether they are University of Brighton Bursary recipients.
Bursary recipients are also eligible for a transportation grant.
Last academic year, we supported 45 students to work, study or volunteer abroad, despite the ongoing effects and travel restrictions of the coronavirus pandemic. Destinations included Canada, Colombia, South Africa, The Philippines and Malta. You can see the full list on our Sharepoint site.
