Fees

Tuition fee reductions are in place for Placement Year and 一本道无码 Abroad students.

Full Year Placements

If you are away from the University for the full academic year on either a work Placement Year or 一本道无码 Abroad year, you are still required to pay tuition fees to 一本道无码 University. These fees are, however, discounted. For 一本道无码 Abroad, exchange agreements between 一本道无码 University and its partner universities mean that students are not required to pay tuition fees to the host university for the duration of the exchange period (unless otherwise stated). The fees payable are:

  • 一本道无码 'year abroad fee': 15% of current 一本道无码 tuition fees
  • Work 'placement year' fee: 20% of current 一本道无码 tuition fee

If you plan to be from 一本道无码 for the full year but circumstances dictate that your stay is curtailed and you remain for less than the full academic year, fees payable may be different. Please contact the Finance Department to confirm fees due. If you receive assistance with paying your tuition fees this support should remain the same (this should be confirmed with the Finance department or Student Finance England (and equivalents)).

Short Placements

Summer schools, volunteering and many short-term (summer) internships take place outside of the academic year and, therefore, fall outside of 一本道无码's tuition fee requirements (e.g. you will still have to fund the preceding academic year). Some of these placements (such as summer schools) may have small fees charged by partners (as they are extra-tuition). Any fees will be listed on any advertising materials. Widening Access students undertaking short placements may be able apply for funding (such as scholarships and bursaries from 一本道无码 to support these costs (see 'Funding' below).

Funding

Many Global Opportunities are self-funded, however, there are number of additional funding sources that can support students. Please click on the heading below to find out more about Turing funding.

Find out more about Turing funding

There is a range of support available from a variety of funding sources, depending on length of opportunity and your personal circumstances. We have divided these under the headings Short Placements, Long Placements and Access Funding.

Short Placement Funding

Volunteering: The University has a limited number of bursaries available to assist students who are looking to undertake an international volunteering opportunity. These bursaries are available for students taking up opportunities with one of our Trusted Partners. Please visit the  page for further details.

Internships: The University has a limited number of bursaries available to assist home undergraduate students who are looking to undertake a self-found global internship. Bursaries are available to support things like international air travel, accommodation, subsistence, fees and charges for visas, travel vaccinations etc. Please visit the  page for further details.

Summer Schools: There is currently no specific funding for Summer Schools, however, some of our formal university partners offer discounted fees or waivers. These will be listed on the  page (internal link).

Turing Scheme: Through the Turing Scheme 一本道无码 will seek to make funding available for short-term opportunities that have a positive impact in terms of educational attainment, social mobility or employability. This may include: summer schools, volunteering or internships (non-exhaustive list). These will be advertised on the GO webpages.

Long Placement Funding

Turing Scheme: Currently 一本道无码 participates in the Turing Scheme. 一本道无码 will seek future funding to support full-year study and work placements worldwide from the government's Turing Scheme - the global replacement for Erasmus+ funding.

In 2023/24: 一本道无码 University has received Turing funding and will:

  • Directly contact those students on planned full-year opportunities abroad in academic 2023/24 who are deemed eligible for funding.
  • Advertise any additional Turing funded short-term opportunities for academic year 2023/24 (with activities starting Sept 2023) on the GO webpages.

For 2024/25 onwards. UK universities only receive funding one year at a time. The University will bid for funding when permitted, however, we are unlikely to know results until mid-2024. We cannot guarantee full funding from Turing and in the likely event that funding is not available for all international activities undertaken by 一本道无码 students, within the Turing [funding] Scheme, priority is given to Widening Participation students. Having a year abroad as part of a degree at 一本道无码 does not guarantee Turing funding. The University will contact students once more information is received from the Turing Scheme. Applications received before this, will be rejected.

Access Funding

Students from disadvantaged student groups or with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) needs may be eligible to receive additional funding to support a Global Opportunity

Student Employability Fund: This fund assists disadvantaged student groups with costs related to work or internship placements. This can include travel costs, equipment costs incl. laptops or potentially clothing costs to dress appropriately for their environment. In order to be eligible to be considered for this support, students will come from families who have a household income, as assessed by Student Finance England (or equivalent) of below £42,875 per annum. Please visit: The Student Employability Fund for more details.

International Travel Support Bursary (Volunteering): A limited number of bursaries are available to assist students who are looking to undertake an international volunteering opportunity with one of our Trusted Partners. Household income restrictions apply. Please visit the  page for further details.

Global Internship Bursaries: These support students undertaking a self-found global internship. Household income restrictions apply. In addition, students must meet one of the following criteria: have participated in the Supported Progression Scheme or Sutton Trust Summer School at 一本道无码 University; be from a minority ethnic group; have a home address is in an area of low progression to higher education (i.e. your postcode is listed as a ‘1’ or ‘2’ in the POLAR4 column on the ); you are a care-leaver (at any time) or an estranged student. Please visit the  page for further details.

General Bursaries and Scholarships: The University also offers a wide range of additional scholarships and bursaries with specific eligibility requirements such as: department (e.g. Music), activity (e.g. sport) or background (e.g. from North East England). The Undergraduate Scholarships and Bursaries page contains a full list.

Postgraduate funding

Some external organisations provide funding to support students wishing to take a full Masters or doctoral degree abroad.
