UWS is excited to announce that it has been successful in its latest application to the UK student mobility ‘Turing Scheme’, securing 100 percent of the requested funding.
The funding will help support 52 students to undertake both short (four-week) and longer (semester) study abroad opportunities in North America, Africa and Europe.
This funding really helps support our students to undertake potentially life-changing study abroad opportunities and significantly enhance their job opportunities beyond university.
Professor Richard Davison, Head of TNE and Mobility at UWS
Marcus Ross, Vice Principal, Planning and Recruitment, said: “We are delighted by this success as the development of these opportunities supported by the Turing Scheme funding demonstrates the University’s Strategy 2025 commitment to developing graduates that are ‘world-ready’ for the international job market.”
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.
