Funding through Taith and Turing Scheme
All UWTSD students who submit a Go Global Application will be automatically considered for funding. The Outward Mobility Team will place you under either Taith or Turing funding, depending on your unique circumstances. Students going abroad will not need to apply for this funding. This funding will not cover all costs, but is meant to help supplement students personal savings, loans, and other financial sources to go abroad.
There is additional funding available for students from a Widening Participation (WP) background (e.g. those with low household income, students with caring responsibilities, student refugees, etc.) To find out if you qualify, please see the checklist in the ‘Glossary of Useful Terms’ found in the Go Global Handbook.
It is important that you apply for your student loan by the normal deadlines and through the relevant Student Loan Company. It is important that you are enrolled on the correct degree scheme which reflects your semester abroad, and that you inform your Student Loan Company that you are going abroad. You may be asked to submit a course abroad form, which the team can sign and stamp for you. it is your responsibility to apply for any loans and grants.
If you are spending a semester abroad, you will pay your usual tuition fees to UWTSD.
