The Turing Scheme: placements for postgraduate researchers

The Turing Scheme is the UK Government's global programme for studying and working abroad, providing students in the UK with funding to support international education opportunities across the world.

As part of the scheme at The University of Manchester, we’re pleased to offer research placements for our postgraduate researchers (PGRs) at selected international partner universities and research institutes.

PGRs, in any academic discipline, will receive a grant to conduct a research placement as an integrated part of their existing programme.

Placements must last a minimum of 28 days, excluding travel days.

The aim of the placement is to add value to a PGR’s existing doctoral programme through exposure to a different research environment and access to complementary facilities and expertise.

PGRs going on placement will gain a global perspective, improve their intercultural communication skills, expand their academic network, and enhance their future employability.
