Turing Scheme

Extra funding available for full-degree students going abroad during their studies.

The University of Roehampton has been successful in its bid for Turing Scheme funding.

Students due to go in the 2021/2022 academic year on a
 semester abroad placement will be contacted with further information on how to apply for funding. For all other enquiries or if you are interested in a funded opportunity please email Roehampton Abroad.

Funding awarded will allow over 150 students to undertake a semester, summer programme or internship abroad alongside the University’s existing Erasmus+ funding in the 2021/2022 academic year. Students will be able to receive funding for placements to any destination, subject to FCDO advice, for mobilities lasting from 4 weeks up to a year. Grants will help to cover the cost of travel and cost of living, with additional top-ups offered to disadvantaged students to ensure equal opportunities for all students to undertake an international experience.

The Turing Scheme was announced by the UK Government to replace the Erasmus+ Scheme to allow UK institutions to bid for funding in order to continue to promote and fund exchange and study abroad opportunities post Brexit. Funding will allow students and recent graduates to develop key transferrable skills, boost their employability prospects, create a global network and improve cross-cultural understanding.

Roehampton aims to over double the number of students participating in a period abroad as part of their degree programme in the next five years and embed international experiences in all degree programmes as part of the Outward Mobility Strategy 2021-2025. Turing funding will allow more Roehampton students than ever before to study abroad and will allow the University to expand international partnerships and programmes across the globe.
