The comments made by Iain Stewart, the UK Government Minister for Scotland, on 6 August 2021.
Living, studying and working abroad is an invaluable way to broaden the mind, learn new skills and experience different cultures. It’s great that this scheme will give Scottish students from all backgrounds the opportunity to take up placements right across the globe.
The UK Government is working hard to create a truly Global Britain, in which the benefits of enhanced relationships with nations around the world are felt in every part of the country. The Turing Scheme is a major step forward in reaching this goal.
