The Department for Education has announced a new £100 million scheme that will enable students to study and work abroad. The new Turing scheme will replace the UK’s participation in Erasmus+.
The new scheme will start in September 2021 and will provide funding for around 35,000 students in universities, colleges and schools to go on placements and exchanges overseas. The programme will provide similar opportunities for students to study and work abroad as the Erasmus+ programme but it will include countries across the world and aims to deliver greater value for money to taxpayers.
UK organisations will be invited to bid into the scheme in early 2021.
Successful applications will receive funding for administering the scheme and students taking part will receive grants to help them with the costs of their international experience.
