Fully-funded Turing Internship Programme

3 month Turing Internship in a beautiful international setting, fully-funded by the UK Government

Fully-funded Turing Internship Programme

Say Hello to The Turing Scheme...

We love creating opportunities. That’s why we’re committed to delivering the best international internship experiences for people in the UK and abroad. We’ve been working with Erasmus for over 15 years, and we bring the same level of quality and care to The Turing Scheme.

The Turing Scheme is a UK Government programme designed to give anyone aged 18+ the life-changing opportunity to live and work abroad for 10-13 weeks. From Dublin to Bangkok, we give Turing interns the unique chance to explore an exciting new place and make lifelong memories, all while developing the skills and knowledge to land their dream job.

... and goodbye to bland, unpaid internships!

The Turing Scheme is more than a work placement. It’s a fully funded global experience - where you’ll meet new people, explore a different culture, and maybe even learn a new language.

International experiences and language skills are universally valued among employers in the UK. Only a third of UK adults can speak more than one language, meaning language skills are high in demand and overseas internships make you stand out from the crowd.

Whether it’s your first ever job or the start of a career change, a Turing Scheme internship is an opportunity to grow both personally and professionally.

With the Turing Scheme, you get:

- A 10, 12, or 13-week work placement (Digital Marketing or TEFL)
- Return flights
- Accommodation
- £85/week living allowance
- Full comprehensive health and travel insurance
- A prepaid travel Card (Dublin only)
- An in-country language course (Spain and Portugal only)
- Awards contributing to a relevant level 3 qualification
- Support and mentoring throughout your placement

So why not apply?

I learned a lot about myself during this experience, and a lot of it was learning from others' experiences in life compared to my own!

Support and Mentorship

At Twin, we care. Internships with The Turing Scheme are fully funded and, throughout your placement, you’ll receive 24hr support from our team. There’s no need to worry about booking flights or finding accommodation - everything is organised for you. All you need to do is arrive at the airport!

You’ll also get to participate in a 10-week course relevant to your chosen sector. Current courses include:

Marketing: Level 3 Certificate in Social Media in Business
TEFL: Level 3 certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).

If you opt for Spain or Portugal, you’ll attend free language courses suitable to your current level.

We offer a variety of fantastic locations across the globe. Whether you’re enjoying Valencia’s sunny beaches or visiting temples in Thailand, we’re sure you’ll find somewhere you can thrive.

Placements

Our Turing placements fall into two main sectors: Digital Marketing, and TEFL.

We have a vast network of companies that specialise in a range of industries, meaning that each role comes with its own unique set of responsibilities.

For each placement, we require evidence of transferable skills and/or previous experience/qualification. While Turing internships are a learning opportunity, it is important to show you can add value to your desired company.

For more information about individual sectors and companies available in each destination, see below:

 

When can I go? 

Most of our programmes begin in April, July, and September. Applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis - so the earlier you make an application, the better.

  • Be at least 18 years old

It’s been such a whirlwind, from applying last-minute to the shock of being offered a full-time job in a new city!

*The SMALL print

The Turing Scheme is a UK Government-funded programme and specifically designed to help you gain valuable work experience, which is why almost all costs are covered.

But, some things are not included, such as travel to and from the airport, and while your accommodation is covered and you get a weekly living allowance of 100€ if you overspend on food and excursions, you might need to dip into your savings.  

Have a question? Read our FAQs, check out the official programme handbook here or contact us either by message or by calling us at 020 8269 5690.
