According to the Department for Education, more than 40,000 young people “will be able to work and study abroad” this academic year through the Turing scheme, which has replaced the Erasmus programme .

A total of 412 applications were received from education and training providers from across the UK and 363 projects were approved to receive grant funding totalling just over £96m, with 48% of placements for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.

We would like to hear about students’ experiences of the new foreign study scheme. Where do you plan to study? Have you experienced any difficulties organising your placement, such as with Covid restrictions, or have there been problems securing funding?
