The Turing Scheme is the UK's post-Brexit replacement for Erasmus+ and promises the world to British students, quite literally. The scheme has opened up multiple opportunities across the globe, far beyond Europe, with the central aim of improving social mobility.

Can You Take Part?

Schools, colleges and higher education providers can apply for funding for projects on behalf of their pupils, students and learners. If you are based in one of the aforementioned organisations, you may be eligible to take part. It doesn’t matter if you are a full time or part time student.

Why You Should Consider The Turing Scheme

Participating in a Turing Scheme placement will give you the chance to develop new skills, gain vital international experience and boost your future employability. You can also develop professional practice, a wide range of soft skills and language skills. You will build relationships with international peers and gain fresh ideas along with a better understanding of other cultures.

With Prestigious Schools Partnering The Turing Scheme

Thanks to The Turing Scheme, Britain's brightest and most ambitious students now have more opportunities to study at the best schools in the world. These schools include prestigious names such as Yale, Harvard, the University of Toronto and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

How to Apply

Schools, colleges, higher education providers and vocational training centres can all apply for The Turing Scheme funding. Once accepted, the scheme is open to anyone who attends one of these organisations on a full or part-time basis. It's even available for people who aren't in permanent education or training. For example, former apprentices can carry out a traineeship abroad within 12 months of graduating and anyone upskilling through a college or school can take part in a traineeship abroad. The exact type of funding will vary depending on the placement and the country you intend to visit, so speak to your provider directly. You should also check if you're eligible for extra financial assistance or other assistance.
