Summer-Programmes-2023-4.pdf

  1. 1. SUMMER PROGRAMMES 2023 We are very excited that you are considering going abroad in the summer! These are fantastic opportunities to learn new study skills, enhance your CV, see the world, make friends, have fun, and build up your personal and professional skills for the future! Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to offer places to all students. This is subject to availability. However, we have a great range of opportunities listed below and we promise we will do our best This information is subject to change and is updated regularly when partner universities and other organisations send updates on their programmes. The last update was on 1st December 2022 NEXT STEPS • Research the opportunities by country below, including programme websites and the FCDO travel pages for regular updates on the travel situation. • Choose up to four programmes in order of your preference to increase your chance of a place. • Research the costs related with the programme (programme fees, flights and visas, food, living expenses etc.). Please complete the Budgeting Plan for the most expensive programme out of your chosen four. Depending on the popularity of the summer school, we may invite you for an interview. You will need to bring your completed budget plan with you. • Ensure that you meet the entry requirements of your chosen summer programme, especially if you are applying for an academic summer school. • To avoid disappointment, we strongly advise you to consult the BCU academic calendar and your course guide to be certain of your specific attendance requirements before you make plans to take part in a summer programme • FINAL YEAR STUDENT? You are eligible to apply for the summer programmes as long as the programme has taken place within the 12 month period from the date you complete your course at BCU • POSTGRADUATE STUDENT? You must check with your Academic Team if they will approve your absence from the programme before you apply. • Check if the duration qualifies for Turing funding (28 calendar days) - you can still apply for shorter durations if you like the programme. However, you will not be assessed for Turing funding if the duration is under 28 calendar days. • Complete BCU’s application by 12 Noon on Wednesday 8 February 2023. The link to the application form will be available here shortly. • Please do not apply to the host university/organisation directly at this stage. This is a two-stage application process • We will contact you once we have allocated places, which we aim to complete by the end of February - you will then receive further instructions on the next steps, including the partner’s application process to your host university/organisation’s programme. • Please check your BCU email on a regular basis, as you will need to accept or decline our offer of a place within 3 days. Please note: if you are successful in securing a place on a summer programme, travel is subject to University (including risk assessment) and FCDO approval and your placement is subject to change or cancellation if the destination country is not safe to travel to at the time of the summer programme.
  2. 2. If you have any questions, we will be holding both in-person and virtual drop-in sessions with the Go Abroad Team – we will add further information about when and where here shortly. In the meantime, please feel free to email us: goabroad@bcu.ac.uk (please wait for the drop ins if you don’t get an immediate answer). We cannot wait to receive your application! BEFORE YOU START YOUR RESEARCH • Please submit one application only. We will not be allocating the first round of places until the deadline of 8th February 2023. • Dates and durations in the country tables below may not include accommodation check in and/or compulsory orientation dates • Online programmes are great alternatives if you are not able to travel, however, please note that they do not qualify for funding • Most students will be accepted by the programme provider. However, if your subject area requires supporting evidence such as an academic reference, or proof of recent grades, then the programme provider will need to assess your full application file before they can guarantee you a place. You should note that although you may be accepted, you will not necessarily be guaranteed a place on your preferred modules – this will depend on availability and the programme provider’s assessment of your academic background. FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES • You may qualify for Turing funding to contribute towards this experience. In the academic year 2022/23, the minimum duration for Turing is 28 calendar days. Further information about eligibility and contribution amounts can be found here • Fee waivers and further discounts may also be available for some of our partner organisations • Eligibility for funding, discounts and fee waivers will be assessed on the information you provide in your summer programme application once a summer opportunity has been offered • Each opportunity is marked as to whether it will be eligible for a funding assessment based on duration of the programme – please note that this does not guarantee funding eligibility for all students as an additional requirement for funding is based on individual student circumstances Please note: We recommend you research all opportunities, not just those that are funded – we have online programmes too which are free to join and so many other fantastic opportunities of less than 28 days that won’t attract funding but may be affordable even without the funding due to their shorter durations!
