The Turing Scheme is the UK government’s programme that provides funding for international opportunities in education and training across the world. It supports Global Britain by providing an opportunity for UK organisations from the higher education, further education, vocational education & training and schools’ sectors to offer their students, learners and pupils life-changing experiences to study or work abroad.In doing so, The Turing Scheme unlocks life-changing experiences across the world for the UK’s pupils, students and learners. Schools, colleges and higher education providers 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 or part time student.
