Newman University receives funding from Turing Scheme for students to experience international education
Newman University has successfully bid for funding from the British government’s sponsored Turing Scheme so students can experience international education and training opportunities.
The Turing Scheme is designed to help universities, colleges, and schools offer international education and training opportunities to students, through almost £105m in funding to support placement costs. More than 22,800 higher education placements, 6,700 school placements, and more than 10,500 further education and vocational education and training placements will be available to students across the sector.
Newman University has received its highest-ever funding award from the Turing scheme for the 2023/24 academic year, which will provide students the opportunity to experience international travel and cultural exchange in ways that they would not usually have the opportunity for. Selected students will be able to go on 30-day international visits to a number of universities in the USA, the Netherlands, Japan, Germany, and Spain.
Professor Richard Medcalf, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Students), Newman University said: “We are delighted that students at Newman will be able to benefit from Turing-funded international opportunities over the next academic year. We know how transformational student mobility can be, and we’re proud to be working with partners in Europe, North America, and Asia to provide cultural exchanges that will add to the student experience at Newman.”
The Turing Scheme is the UK government’s programme to provide funding for international opportunities in education and training across the world. The scheme provides 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.
