International Student Office

 

If you have been informed by your Faculty or Department that you are eligible for a Turing Scheme grant for your year abroad, you will be required to provide the following documentation outlined on this webpage. If you have been informed you are eligible for the Turing Scheme funding for activity not related to a year abroad, you will be notified of any documentation requirements from the International Student Office when you receive confirmation of funding.

Student grant agreement 

This form sets out the amount of grant you will receive, and the terms and conditions attached to the funding. The contract will also request your bank details. Please note that grant payments can only be made into a UK bank account, therefore details for a UK bank account should be provided. Eligible students will be asked to complete an online form and this information will be used to issue the grant agreement. This will be sent to you by email and will need to be signed and returned to the International Student Office.  

You will also need to provide the following documents depending on the type of activity:  

Study placement:  

Certificate of Arrival 

You will need to ask your host institution to complete the Certificate of Arrival and return it to the International Student Office. Your grant payment can only be made once this has been returned and the student Grant Agreement completed. You may also be asked to complete Sections 1 and 2 of a Learning Agreement. Your Faculty will inform you if this is required.

Certificate of Attendance or Transcript of Results 

At the end of your placement, you will need to return to the International Student Office:

  • a Certificate of Attendance completed by your host institution
    OR
  • a Transcript of Results from the host institution covering the study placement.

Where a Learning Agreement was requested by your Faculty at the start of the study placement, Section 4 should be completed at the end rather than either of the above documents.

Voluntary internship: 

Learning Agreement 

The Learning Agreement should be signed by you, your Faculty/Department and the host organisation before you your mobility period begins and identifies what you will be doing during the traineeship; the skills and knowledge you are expected to have acquired by the end of the internship and how you will be monitored and evaluated. Changes can be made during the period abroad.  

Certificate of Arrival 

You will need to ask your host organisation to complete the Certificate of Arrival and return it to the International Student Office. Your grant payment can only be made once this has been returned and the student Grant Agreement completed. This is not required for an internship that started in September or October 2021 as the completed Learning Agreement will be sufficient confirmation you have started the placement.  

Internship certificate 

This must be completed at the end of your period abroad by either your host institution or organisation and is the final section in your Learning Agreement. 

Additional Information

The International Student Office will also confirm with your Faculty or Department that you have completed and had approved a risk assessment for your activity prior to processing the Turing Scheme grant payment. 

Failure to complete any of these requirements may affect your eligibility to receive, or retain, your Turing Scheme grant.
