Same Turing Scheme is set to replace the UK’s participation in Erasmus+. This new Turing Scheme aims to fund 35,000 students in universities, colleges, and schools abroad. Educational institutions are welcome to begin applying to participate in this scheme this year affording British students the opportunity to attend European universities.

Erasmus+ remains the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. With the UK unable to agree on the cost of their continued participation in Erasmus+, the programmes budget is now no longer available for participation to British students.
