Since 2007 we have helped many university students and staff achieve a variety of educational goals including studying at universities abroad, setting up their own businesses, establishing international academic links with other universities and so on. Santander's commitment to higher education is unwavering. Some of the beneficiaries have wanted to share their experiences with us.
What the beneficiaries say
Recipient of Santander Scholarship:
Paulina Preciado Lopez from Mexico on studying at Oxford University
“Without Santander funding, studying at such a prestigious institution as the University of Oxford would have been virtually impossible”
TOP Brazil UK, cultural and academic exploration programme:
Talita Dartibale Amado Third year of Law Course, in “UNESP” (Universidade Estadual Paulista) on her experience
“Being selected for the TOP Brazil UK Program, of Santander Universities, was not just a dream come true, but also a unique opportunity to improve our English…to know about a different culture…the chance of living the British “way of life” and being in contact with a different educational system, and especially, with the UK Legal system.
During the Law classes we attended at Durham University, we learned not only about Law, but also about specific educational methods that could possibly be adapted to some universities in Brazil.”
Recipient of Santander Scholarship at the University of Northampton:
Maximilian Christ from Germany/Uruguay, Third year BSc Leather Technology, University of Northampton on why it is good to apply for an award
“I would recommend to every student who needs some financial help to try to get this scholarship. It is a great opportunity to create a good contact with one of the biggest banks in the world and it creates a good bond for the future.”
