Sources of Funding

Undertaking a Global Opportunity can be a fantastic and life changing experience. However, we are aware that the cost can be a barrier for a lot of students.

Some programmes provide funding but if you are not eligible you should consider the sources of funding below:

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.

You can not apply directly for Turing funding.

We at Queen's University Belfast apply for funding, then depending on how much we receive, we will contact all eligible students.

We cannot guarantee who will receive Turing funding at this point.
