This funding will enable Belfast Met students to develop new skills, to gain vital international experience and to boost their employability. They will also develop a wide range of soft skills and a better understanding of other cultures. The College will also have the opportunity to develop as an organisation, build relationships with international peers and to share fresh ideas.

Damian Duffy, Director of Development at Belfast Met, confirmed: ”I am absolutely delighted to secure this opportunity for our learners. This student mobility funded by the new UK Turing scheme is crucial in a post- pandemic world. It will provide learners the chance to develop their personal and technical skills and allow them to experience another culture.”

Glen McMahon, International Manager at Belfast Met, said: “We are delighted to have secured this funding in the first release of the new Turing scheme. It is a fantastic opportunity for our students to travel to Felician University with whom we already have such a great partnership and I look forward to working with them.”
