Exchange, Study Abroad and Volunteering

The University encourages students to consider study and work abroad opportunities as a way of developing global perspectives and cross-cultural capabilities in their day-to-day lives and practice.

The Turing Scheme

The Turing Scheme supports Leeds Arts University students to spend part of their second undergraduate year abroad.

Financial support is available to help towards the costs of mobility. Every student is entitled to funding, it is not means-tested. Higher grant rates and travel grants are available to help disadvantaged students participate. Grants are set by the Turing Scheme and vary by destination. The grants are intended as a contribution towards the costs of studying abroad.   

Grants can also support students to undertake internships which can take place over the summer or for up to a year after graduation. 

The minimum duration for a study placement or an internship is 4 weeks, the maximum is 12 months. 

If you have students that might be interested in a study abroad placement please ask them to contact
