From Birmingham to Brazil, or even South Korea! 

We’re delighted to announce that through the Turing Scheme (the UK government's global programme to study and work abroad), funding is available for UoB students to study abroad this summer.  

Studying abroad is a brilliant opportunity to get a taste of living and working abroad, and gain valuable skills and experience which will look great on your CV. 

Opportunities are available in the following countries: 

  • Brazil 

  • China 

  • France 

  • Germany 

  • Israel 

  • Italy 

  • Netherlands 

  • South Korea 

  • Spain 

  • Switzerland. 

Visit the Short-term Global Experiences webpage for more details on the universities available in this scheme. You can then use each university’s website to view the full costs, eligibility criteria and application process (including deadlines) for the summer school before you apply. But act fast as applications for some summer schools are closing soon!
