But next year’s numbers still less than UK’s pre-Brexit participation in Erasmsus+
A total of 38,000 students from UK universities, schools and colleges are to take part in the country’s Turing Scheme for international exchange next year. This is an increase on last year but still less than the number of UK-departing students who took part in the EU’s Erasmus+ exchange programme before Brexit ended their eligibility.
According to the Department for Education, the students will go on trips abroad next year with the support of £105 million from the Turing Scheme, the UK government’s post-Brexit replacement for Erasmus+. The scheme ran for the first time in the 2021-22 academic year.
