Study Abroad Funding

The Turing Scheme

The Turing Scheme is a competitive grant funding scheme.

It provides grants to fund individuals undertaking education and training in the UK, to go on study or work placements across the world.


Erasmus is the European Commission's exchange programme that enables students to spend either one semester or one full academic year studying or working in another European country.  The time you spend on your Erasmus study or work placement will count as part your degree.  Students normally receive an Erasmus top-up grant to help with the additional costs of moving to another country.
