The Turing Scheme
The Turing Scheme is the UK government’s global programme to study and work abroad.
Depending on your programme of study at the College, you will have an opportunity to learn abroad and gain vital international experience. Study abroad offers unique, career-building opportunities and will help you develop a host of new skills, and a better understanding of other cultures.
International study will help develop your independence. You can expect to be challenged but ultimately you will have one of the most valuable learning experiences whilst at college.
International study looks great on your CV, and often gives you an edge at interview!
