Turing Summer Scholars scheme

Edinburgh Napier University is delighted to announce the return of an exciting opportunity for students to undertake a self-directed international activity during Summer 2023, with funding support from the UK Government’s Turing Scheme.

The Turing Scheme is the UK government’s international mobility grant programme, which seeks to provide students with funding for international opportunities in education and training across the world.

If you are a current Undergraduate or Postgraduate widening participation student (taught or research) or if you are graduating this year and would like to take part in a non-credit bearing international experience over the Summer of 2023, then this funding may be for you!

Short-term Exchange Opportunities

Short-term exchange opportunities are a great option if you want to pick up a new language or explore a new topic over the summer without putting a big dent in your bank balance. Or if you really want to study abroad but can't leave Edinburgh during term-time.

Summer schools offer a great mix of study and social events, enabling you to learn something new as well as experience a different culture. The best part is that you can do all of this whilst spending your time with other students from all over the world.

As well as being a great opportunity and a fun way to spend your summer, having a summer school experience looks great on your CV. It will help you to expand your network, grow your international friendship group and may even help with your degree.

If you think that a summer school may be a good option for you, feel free to get in touch with your programme leader to discuss any possible academic credit you may be able to get. You can also contact the Global Mobility Team who will be able to offer support and guidance with your application if you need it.
