International work placements for recent graduates

Our recent graduates can access an Erasmus+ grant or Turing grant to undertake a work placement overseas that will enhance professional skills and establish networks to increase global job prospects. Please note: the placement needs to be completed within 12 months of graduating.

Erasmus+ grants support placements within the EU and lasting from 2 months to 12 months. The Turing Scheme grants support placements in all countries and lasting from 4 weeks to 12 months.
