ABSTRACT:
The British Council's Generation UK scheme is a remarkable and innovative program aimed at ensuring students from lower income backgrounds have the opportunity to engage in a mobility experience abroad. It also serves as an example for successfully embracing diversity in education. With a high percentage of participants being first generation scholars (first in their family to attend a higher educational institution), the scheme enables learning experiences which, until recently, hadn't been realised in British history.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
The aim is to educate delegates about the format of the British Council's Generation UK scheme as well as explain who is eligble for funding and why. We will inform delegates about how a successful, government scheme can provide opportunities to those who need it most. The outcomes of the scheme to date are presented in a clear and concise manner.
