The Turing Scheme provides funding for international opportunities in education and training across the world.

This scheme is generously funded by the Department for Education and supports students to take up opportunities to gain international experience that will be both personally and academically beneficial.


The Turing Fund also recognises that students from under-represented backgrounds are less likely to spend a period of their degree overseas.

Widening access to these opportunities is a key priority of the scheme and enhanced funding is offered to students from lower income backgrounds or those who meet the relevant eligibility criteria.

 You can find out more about widening access and eligibility for enhanced funding below.

Please check this page again at the end of this academic year for updates about possible future funding.
