Turing Scheme website live

Bids for the UK’s new £110 million Turing Scheme will open to universities, FE providers and schools next month. The DfE has announced the “next phase” of the international student exchange programme by launching a website www.turing-scheme.org.uk which outlines funding rates and eligibility criteria ahead of a six-week bidding process in March.

The scheme was unveiled in December as the replacement to the UK’s participation in Erasmus+ following Brexit. It will allow students to study and work abroad from September 2021, and will target those from disadvantaged backgrounds. The DfE plans to issue funding decisions in July.
