The University of Southampton is using Turing Scheme funding to enable students to fulfil exciting international ambitions in 2021 to 2022 – from working with cutting-edge scientists in Switzerland to learning about high fashion in Hong Kong.
Study and work placements, also taking place in the USA, Canada, Japan and South Korea, form integral aspects of students’ degree programmes. They are enabling participants to develop new skills and cultural intelligence and gain crucial international experience.The Turing Scheme will support the university to develop opportunities that are both inclusive and expansive to the student community.
An international strategy
Professor Jane Falkingham, Vice-President International, said: “We’re about to publish our exciting new University Strategy which will set out our ambition for our students, ensuring they are internationally recognised as curious, engaged, ethical, culturally aware, and socially and environmentally responsible. Through our participation in the Turing Scheme, Southampton students will be able to access opportunities across the globe to help them develop and fulfil that ambition.”
Change of pace
