Cat Smith: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, whether the Turing Scheme will enable young people to go on exchange visits to other countries.
Michelle Donelan: The Turing scheme will be backed by at least £100 million, providing funding for around 35,000 students in universities, colleges, and schools to go on placements and exchanges overseas, starting in September 2021 and replaces funding previously available through the education mobility element of Erasmus+. The scheme will be global and not be limited to the EU. Further details of the scheme will be published shortly.
