UK schools can apply for funding to send their pupils/students to learn abroad
Sending School a school providing general, vocational, or technical education on any level from primary school to upper secondary education
Pupils registered in a UK or a British Overseas Territory school can take part in the scheme. Pupils do not need to be UK nationals to be eligible for the scheme. You can send your pupils to take part in two types of placements abroad for the 2021-22 academic year:
Short-term placements (from three days to two months) Short-term placements are for pupils of any age enrolled in a participating school and are accompanied by school staff. These placements will offer international learning experiences to help pupils acquire social, civic and intercultural competences for their personal development. They can also help pupils to develop an understanding of cultures and languages
Long-term placements (from two to six months) Long-term placements are open to pupils aged at least 14. The sending and hosting schools are expected to ensure high quality learning outcomes, to provide appropriate recognition for the involved pupils, and to constantly support them during their time abroad. This includes funding for accompanying staff to chaperone participants where necessary as part of safeguarding or duty of care.
Hosting Organisations You can send your pupils to non-UK schools that provide general, vocational or technical education at any level from primary school to upper secondary education.

Application process and award criteria
UK organisations will be able to apply for funding through the Turing Scheme’s online application form. The application form will ask organisations to provide an overview of their project including the project activities, how participants will be chosen, budget and organisation details such as legal name and address to prove eligibility. Applications will be assessed according to how well they demonstrate that the project will achieve the core objectives of the scheme. For more information about the objectives of the Turing Scheme, visit the About the scheme page. The application process will be a call for bids and eligible UK organisations will be able to apply for funding from March 2021. The application window will be open for six weeks. We expect to issue funding decisions in July. The first funded placements will begin at the start of the 2021-22 academic year. Our helpline email will be opened by mid-February, and Q&A webinars will be launched in March alongside the application form and programme guidance, however, we suggest applicants begin planning now.
