Turing Scheme to continue for further three years

The UK government has confirmed allocation of budget to support the Turing Scheme for the next three years in its Spending Review 2021

The Spending Review sets out the UK government’s plan for how public spending will deliver the people’s priorities over the next three years. 

The Turing Scheme, the UK government’s programme to fund study and work opportunities across the world, was initially launched as a one-year programme for the academic year of 2021-22, and has been extended for a further three years, including £110 million for the academic year 2022-23.  

The scheme saw a very positive uptake, after almost £100 million of funding was approved in the inaugural Turing Scheme call for proposals. Some 363 successful applications were approved from universities, schools and further education and training providers across the United Kingdom, to support more than 40,000 students, learners and pupils.

More information on funding for the 2022-23 academic year will be published in due course, with the latest updates via our mailing list and Turing Scheme website.

Should you wish to disseminate news of the Spending Review or share your organisation’s work as part of wider promotion, please contact the Turing Scheme communications team where we will look to amplify messaging further in the coming days.
