DMU receives funding via the Turing Scheme to specifically support students from disadvantaged and underrepresented backgrounds to participate on overseas opportunities that last between 4 weeks and 12 months. Provided below are the categories of students that meet the Scheme’s definition of ‘disadvantaged’, and as a result qualifying for additional funding as outlined on the DMU Global opportunity advert.
We recognise that there are other students who may have a strong case for extra financial support that do not belong to the categories listed above. We therefore welcome applications from students from other underrepresented groups who need additional support, including:
If you belong to one of the aforementioned categories you will need to clearly articulate your need for the additional financial support as part of your application to DMU Global. Funding cannot be guaranteed for students from these categories, but we will endeavour to support as many students as possible.
If you have any questions about the aforementioned categories and how these are assessed please email email@example.com.
