Turing Mobility Funding 2021/2022
Undergraduate and postgraduate students have the opportunity to apply to take a study placement and/or a work placement in another country, depending on their degree programme. Study placements take place at one of our partner universities. Work placements include the opportunity to work as a Language Assistant or undertake paid or unpaid work in another European country.
Students participating in eligible placements can apply for funding, which will be provided by the UK's Turing scheme. Funding is not guaranteed, priority will be given to students from low income households.
The Turing Mobility Funding application for 2021/2022 is open. The application for funding for placements taking place in 2022/2023 is expected to open in April 2022.
Guaranteeing European Mobility Funding until 2022/2023 (post-Brexit)
We are proud to have one of the largest European student mobility programmes in the UK and we will protect this experience.
Where can I study or work abroad?
We have a wide range partner universities, for information on which partner universities and/or work placements are available for your school/department and the name of your academic adviser please see Global opportunities by school.
Please visit Global opportunities by school to find our if your degree programme offers study abroad opportunities. Your home school/department will be able to confirm the minimum academic requirements in order to be eligible to apply for the programme.
For information on studying at Lunds Universitet, Universiteit van Amsterdam or University College Dublin through University-wide exchange please refer to the University-wide exchange webpage. Students require a minimum overall academic average of 60% in order to be eligible to apply for University-wide. Please refer to your academic school/department for the minimum academic requirements for school-based exchanges.
A number of academic schools/departments at the University of Nottingham have student exchange agreements with partner universities. Students from the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures have the opportunity to study or work in Europe during their third year abroad.
Each academic school/department which offers study abroad opportunities has a member of academic staff who is responsible for the exchange agreement with the partner university, acts as the academic adviser, agrees your academic study while abroad and provides advice and support prior to, during and after your study/work abroad experience.
You will need to liaise with your academic adviser to find suitable modules at your host university before you apply. In some schools/departments, the credits gained while studying abroad will count towards your Nottingham degree. To find out the name of your academic adviser please visit Global opportunities by school.
Work placements are only available for a minority of schools/departments. If you are undertaking a work placement, you will need to arrange this yourself, but it must be approved by your school/department in advance. You may also need to complete a work-based project. Your academic adviser/Year Abroad team will be able to confirm the requirements.
Studying abroad in Europe is not just for language students. Increasingly our partner universities are able to offer courses in English, as well as the host language. For a growing number of countries including the Netherlands, Italy, Finland, Germany, Norway and Sweden, you don't need to speak another language fluently and you will be able to study in English. Check with your academic adviser to find out what level of language you will need to study abroad in Europe.
