About Santander Universities UK

In the UK our first partner joined the network in 2007 and since then many universities have become partners of Santander Universities. We fund awards to outstanding students and projects, help entrepreneurs, and give the students the possibility to travel abroad to continue their studies. It is a global network, which exists to help provide students with the support they need to become tomorrow's leaders.

In addition to the UK, Santander Universities has more than 1,020 cooperation agreements with universities in  Argentina, Brazil, Belgium, Chile, China, Colombia, Germany, Korea, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Russia, Singapore, Spain, USA,  United Kingdom, UAE and Uruguay.

Many students from these countries have had the opportunity to study in the UK thanks to the financial support from Santander Universities.
