British University in Georgia will aspire to participate in the new Turing Scheme of the UK
On January 18, the British Teaching University in Georgia (BUG) team held an online meeting with Chris Maskell, who is an assistant to the Collaborations Manager at the University of Buckingham. The two parties discussed the possible platforms for academic exchange targeting students and staff. Mr. Maskell presented a new government-backed £100 million Turing Scheme that will replace UK participation in the Erasmus programme. Buckingham University will apply for funds in 2021 and facilitate staff and student trips to and from partner universities, including BUG, starting this year.
