About the Turing Scheme
The Turing Scheme is the UK government’s global programme to study and work abroad. The scheme provides funding for international opportunities in education and training across the world.
Supporting the government’s Global Britain objectives, the Turing Scheme unlocks the opportunity for UK organisations to offer experiences across the world for their students, learners and pupils.
Funding is open to UK and British Overseas Territories organisations from across the education and training sector through higher education, further or vocational education and training, and schools projects. Eligible organisations can apply for funding through the Turing Scheme for projects that offer the opportunity to study or gain work experience abroad.
This funding allows organisations to provide students, learners and pupils with the chance to develop new skills, gain vital international experience and boost their employability. They can also develop a wide range of soft skills, language skills and a better understanding of other cultures. Organisations can build relationships with international peers and gain fresh ideas.
The Turing Scheme contributes to the UK Government’s commitment to a Global Britain, by helping organisations enhance their existing international ties and forge new relationships around the world.
To meet our aims as a global education and training programme, Turing Scheme funded projects must focus on four main objectives.
- Global Britain – In line with the UK Government’s vision of a Global Britain, Turing Scheme projects support high-quality placements, enhance existing partnerships and encourage the forging of new relationships across the world.
- Levelling up – Turing Scheme Projects support social mobility and widen participation across the UK. They promote equal access and opportunities to all Participants regardless of their background.
- Developing key skills – Projects offer fantastic, career-building opportunities. They give participants the hard and soft skills sought by employers and bridge the gap between education and work.
- Value for UK taxpayers – Projects optimise social value in terms of potential costs, benefits and risks.
