Turing Scheme

Do you fancy a once in a lifetime work placement trip abroad?

You could have the chance to do so if you study with us at Grantham College & University Centre.

Welcome to the Turing Scheme

The UK’s global programme for work experience abroad, offering once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for personal and professional development for students.

About the Scheme

The Turing Scheme is the UK government’s programme to provide funding for international opportunities in education and training across the world. It supports Global Britain by providing an opportunity for UK organisations from the higher education, further education, vocational education and training and schools sectors to offer their students, learners and pupils life-changing experiences to study or work abroad.

Why Take Part?

The Turing Scheme enables Grantham College & University Centre the opportunity to offer life-changing experiences abroad for our students to develop personally and academically. It also supports schools, colleges and higher education institutions to build on and forge new relationships across the world. 

Receiving funding to study or carry out a work placement abroad will help you develop transferable skills, gain vital international experience and broaden your horizons. You will develop cultural awareness and become more open-minded. It will also be a great addition to your CV, helping you to stand out in the global job market and boost employability. Students will return more motivated, independent and confident, having improved their language skills and gained an international network of friends. 

Who can Take Part?

Higher education (HE) students – you can study in another university, or you can gain valuable international work experience through a traineeship in an organisation abroad, across the world.  

Apprentices and learners in further education (FE) and vocational education and training (VET) – you can take par in short or long-term traineeships abroad or learn at a partner FE or VET provider.

Where can I go?

What Happens Next?

During induction, a member of staff responsible for the Turing programme will come and speak to students about the opportunities available in more detail. Students who are interested in participating in International work experience will be required to submit a CV and covering letter, and attend a selection interview. There will be a requirement to attend language lessons and students must ensure that they remain up to date with their course work.
