Turing Scheme

The Turing Scheme was launched in 2021 by the UK government to support international study and work abroad. It was launched to replace the Erasmus+ programme, which the UK has left following its departure from the EU.

What does the Scheme offer?

The Turing Scheme provides UK universities with funding to offer grants to students to carry out an approved study or work placement anywhere in the world.

Your international study or work placement must last for a minimum of four weeks and a maximum of 12 months. It can be a part of your degree or a co-curricular activity (for example a summer school, internship or volunteering).

If you have special educational needs and/or a disability the Turing Scheme provides additional funding. There is also additional funding for disadvantaged students (eligibility criteria for this is set by the UK government).

If you want to find out more details about the Scheme, contact the Go abroad team or visit the Turing Scheme website.

Turing funding for Kent students, 2022-23

Limited funding is available for Kent students taking part in an approved study or work placement in 2022-2023 outside of Europe.

Students going to Europe in 2022-23 on an approved placement may be eligible for an Erasmus grant.

Eligible students who are taking part in an approved term or year abroad as part of their Kent degree in 2022-23 will be contacted directly by the Go Abroad team about the Erasmus or Turing funding available to them. 

We also have limited funding for students carrying out shorter-term (minimum four-week) activities (summer schools, internships, volunteering etc). For more details please see the Go Abroad Bitesize page.
