UEA will be applying to be a part of the new Turing Scheme which will enable UK students to study in other countries.

The scheme is designed to replace the funding awarded under the European Union programme Erasmus, which UK students can no longer take part in.

It is hoped that the Turing scheme will enable up to 35,000 students throughout the UK to work or study across the globe.

UEA’s Head of Global Programmes, Alexandra Cole, said “UEA is proud to be an international university and it’s important that we enable our students to collaborate across the globe. The Turing Scheme will help our students to study or work abroad and that helps students to see global challenges from new perspectives.”

Benefits of the scheme:

  • The Turing Scheme offers funding to support mobility to anywhere in the globe. Universities apply for funding on the behalf of students, and will find out the number of mobilities (places) awarded in the summer of 2021.
  • HE students benefitting from the scheme will receive the basic grant of between £335-545 per month, depending on the destination and duration of mobility.
  • Additional support is available for disadvantaged students of £110 per month plus travel costs, and for students requiring additional support for special educational needs and disabilities. 


UEA is applying to take part in the scheme, providing this global mobility funding from September 2021. UEA will continue to support Erasmus-funded students to the end of our current period of funding in May 2023 and will continue to develop its global exchange partnerships, enabling students to study in another country sue without having to pay tuition fees.

At UEA around 50% of UEA students who study abroad, do so outside of the EU, so as well as replacing Erasmus funding, by becoming part of the Turing Scheme future UEA students will get the benefit of financial support for studying abroad beyond Europe.
