The new funding programme of the UK is designed for all organisations in the education and training sector, such as schools, vocational education and training, and further education or higher education organisations. The Turing Scheme offers the possibility to provide grants for mobilities across the globe.

With the Turing Scheme, you don’t just have the chance to visit a new country but also to live there temporarily and so experience culture at a higher level.



North America, (especially Canada), is one of the largest nations of economy and is therefore an extremely popular destination for Turing Scheme internships.

There are many sectors where trainees can do an internship such as the tourism industry, medical industry or in business. Canada is the home for ambition and adventure while boosting your career in a friendly and mesmerising country.

Another big player in terms of dream Turing Scheme destinations is Australia.

Dominican Republic

You might not be able to have your work desk right on the beach, but beach views are highly likely when interning in the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic offers plenty of interesting fields for a Turing Scheme internship in their booming economy such as health, tourism, or business. Besides learning Spanish during your Turing Scheme stay you will most likely adjust to the easy-going mentality and feel like a local soon enough. In your free time you can enjoy the pristine sandy beaches and the crystal-clear sea.



A really unique destination, that only few people can claim to have been to is Antarctica. It is really difficult to get a job in Antarctica, but it is possible. Bear in mind that Antarctica has no human population and therefore there is not much infrastructure at all. Almost all jobs available are on National Research Stations and are separated into scientific (Geologist, Chemist, Meteorologist etc) and support (cook, electrician, carpenter, mechanic, plumber etc.) jobs. A Turing Scheme internship in Antarctica will definitely boost your CV and make you stand out in the application process.



Macao is a city and special administrative region of the Republic of China providing a great variety of job opportunities in different sectors.
