Apply for Turing Scheme funding (in person only)

Complete a separate application for Turing Scheme funding by one of the following application deadlines; 4 May or 20 June 2022. More information available here: Turing Scheme 2021-22 (Short Term Mobility) (warwick.ac.uk)

You will need to also submit an application directly to the host university to secure a summer school place. It is recommended that you do not apply for a summer school until you receive the outcome of the North America Bursary unless you would be planning to attend regardless of the funding support.

Credit

It is not possible to carry back credit to Warwick. If you undertake a course which offers credit then you will receive a certificate but this will not contribute towards or be acknowledged as part of your Warwick degree. However, by undertaking the summer school a line will be added to your university transcript acknowledging that you have undertaken a short term mobility opportunity. This will provide an opportunity to discuss with future employers.
