COVID-19

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, summer opportunities in 2022 may be subject to change or cancellation at short notice. Whilst we are anticipating that overseas travel will be permitted in the summer, partner universities are still reviewing their summer school plans for 2022. Some summer schools may be offered as a virtual experience only or may be cancelled altogether. Students should keep this in mind and take a flexible approach when considering their options. 

    Turing Scheme funding

    Turing Scheme funding may be available through Global Opportunities for summer schools in 2022. 

    When applying for this funding, you should indicate which summer school you are planning to apply for. Below are examples of past summer schools that Sheffield students have attended.

      What happens next?

      If you are awarded funding by Global Opportunities, we will contact you by email with further details.

      Being awarded Turing Scheme funding does not guarantee you a place at the summer school of your choice as you will still need to apply to the partner university. This application should be made directly to the partner university. 

      If you are unsuccessful in being awarded any funding, you can still apply for a place at a partner summer school but you will need to self-fund the whole experience.

      Partner universities normally update their webpages with their summer school courses around December or January. Before this, the courses displayed may still be the previous year. The application process and deadlines vary by summer school so you should check the partner university website carefully, especially if you have been awarded Turing Scheme funding from Global Opportunities.
