Travel funding

We believe that cost should not be a barrier to global experiences. That’s why we offer a number of different grants to support students to travel, whether it’s for a field course to Europe or a year in Australia. We are also proud to announce that Lancaster University has successfully been granted the Turing Scheme funding for 2023/2024.
