Q 1: What research does The Alan Turing Institute undertake?

Q 2: Are there nationality or other eligibility restrictions?
Ans: There is no nationality-related restriction at the Alan Turing Institute. However, the applicants need to confirm that they will be able to stay and work legally in the UK during the time of their study at the institute. Also, the institute does not take any responsibility for the required visa or work permit.
Q 3: Do I need to do an English test if I have a degree from a UK University?

Q 4: How did the Institute shape its research agenda?
Ans: In 2018, Alan Turing Institute launched a set of eight research challenges, which were developed under the supervision of partners and researchers. These challenges represent the broader areas of applied science which the institute works in. However, the Turing does not lead the research alone. The research agenda relies heavily on significant collaboration and partnerships.
Q 5: Is it possible to join the Institute at a different time of the year?
Ans: Enrichment students have the option to join Alan Turing Institute in either October or January. Apart from these two times, it is not currently possible to apply for deferred entry in the enrichment program at the institute. The lengths of the enrichment schemes at Turing are 6, 9, and 12 months.
