Turing Scheme is a new programme developed by the UK Government which is intended to provide funding for UK students to participate in international placements from 2021/22 onwards. Staffordshire University has been successful in accessing funding through the Turing Scheme to support international placements for our students.
An important feature of the Turing scheme is that funding is available for all Staffordshire University students, so whether you are studying a Foundation programme (at the university or one of our many UK partner colleges), an undergraduate degree, master's degree or even a PhD – you will probably be eligible for funding.
Your experience must be a minimum of 4 weeks and a maximum of 12 months to be eligible for this funding.
