Turing Scheme logo

The Turing Scheme has been designed to help you undertake international opportunities as part of your studies at BU.

*Please note: Some additional funding has been released to support activities in Group 1 countries.
We are now temporarily reopening applications for funding to Group 1 countries. Funding to these countries will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.
Group 1 countries include: American Samoa, Australia, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Canada, Cayman Islands, Cook Islands, Tokelau and Niue, Cuba, Israel, Japan, Kiribati, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Puerto Rico, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Switzerland, Turks and Caicos Islands, USA, Vanuatu, and Venezuela. 

If you choose to undertake a study exchange at one of our partner universities, a work overseas opportunity or another international opportunity (such as summer schools, volunteering, language courses, or field trips or short voluntary traineeships), you will be eligible for a grant as a contribution towards the costs associated with living abroad. Provided that you fulfil the conditions of the programme, the money doesn’t have to be repaid.
