Regent’s receives funding under new Turing Scheme for global study

Regent’s University London has successfully secured a grant from the new Turing Scheme
 
The Turing Scheme, the UK’s replacement for the Erasmus+ programme, has been designed to provide funding for international opportunities in education and training across the world. The scheme supports the UK Government's international ambition to develop a Global Britain.   
 
With over 40,000 UK students set to benefit from the scheme, the funding will enable Regent’s students to take up work placements across 150 international destinations, providing opportunities to gain international work experience and enhance employment prospects.  
 
Dr Ahmed Masoud, Regent’s Director of International Partnerships, said: ‘We are very pleased that Regent’s will participate in the Alan Turing Scheme, which will enable us to support students wishing to undertake a study period abroad (SPA) around the world. Regent’s has a network of global partners, from countries such as South America, the US, and China and we hope that more of our students will be able to spend time studying with them and learning different teaching and cultural practices.’ 
 
There was some stiff competition for the funding, with a total of 412 applications from universities, schools, and further education providers across the UK, and 363 applications being approved by the scheme. 
 
The Turing Scheme will provide funding for outgoing student mobility placements starting in September 2021 and will be administered by the same partner organisations as Erasmus: The British Council and Ecorys.
