Up to 40,000 students can study across the world, including in Spain, with the new Turing program, despite Britain dropping the EU’s Erasmus program due to Brexit.
Up to 40,000 students will be able to study and work abroad thanks to the UK government’s new Turing program.
More than 120 UK universities, as well as schools and higher education institutions across the country, will receive grants from the Turing program of Â£ 110million, which will allow 48% of places to be awarded to people from from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Under the new global program, Canada, Japan and the United States are among more than 150 international destinations where UK students will be funded to work and study alongside popular European countries like Spain, Germany and France.
UK Government Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said: âThe chance to work and learn in a country far from home is a unique opportunity that broadens minds, sharpens skills and improves results.
âBut until now, this has been an opportunity disproportionately taken advantage of by those from the most privileged backgrounds. The Turing Scheme has welcomed a wide range of successful applications from schools and colleges across the country, reflecting our determination that the benefits of Global Britain are shared by all.
“By strengthening our partnerships with the best institutions around the world, the Turing program is realizing the government’s post-Brexit vision and helping a new generation to seize opportunities beyond the borders of Europe,” he said. added.
