Supporting students to study abroad

We are pleased to have secured funding from the Turing Scheme for 21/22

13th September 2021

Solent University has successfully obtained funding from the Turing Scheme to support student study and work mobility across the world.

Earlier this year, the UK Government launched the new Turing Scheme as an alternative to the Erasmus+ Programme, to enable students studying in the UK to access worldwide international study and work opportunities. Participation in the scheme provides an opportunity for students to engage in a culturally rich and academically empowering experiences, that research has proven to impact graduate outcomes (UUKi 2017).

The Turing Scheme aligns closely with Solent’s already established outward global mobility priorities for students, with a particular focus on ensuring opportunities are accessible to all students, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Students will be able to improve their personal skills and develop confidence, independence, and self-assurance as they meet new people, forge new connections abroad and start to build a social and professional network.

The International Office are working closely with teams across the University to set up the Turing Scheme at Solent and support students with taking advantage of study abroad opportunities in countries such as Italy, Portugal, Spain, Greece, India, Sri Lanka, China, Malaysia, Canada and Australia.

Solent’s Turing Scheme project and its planned activities contribute to enabling learners to become world-ready, work-ready and future-ready through a diverse range of global engagement opportunities, including summer programmes, internships and semester study.

With the support of the Turing Scheme, we will provide a diverse range of global engagement opportunities that will support students to expand their horizons and encourage their development as global citizens.

Some of the opportunities available are course specific and will be communicated via the applicable course leaders. Opportunities that are available to all students university-wide will be advertised on the portal and around campus. In all cases, a student selection process will apply - details of which will be released in the coming weeks, alongside the list of opportunities.
