UCL and Santander Universities
UCL began its
partnership with Santander Universities
in 2007 and was one of the very first UK universities to become a member of the
Santander Universities network.
The partnership provides UCL students and staff with numerous benefits and opportunities which range from study abroad experiences to awards for non-academic achievement.
Santander Universities began its activity in Spain in 1997 with one main objective: to support higher education. Since then, Santander has donated over £500m to help provide students with opportunities to help them to become tomorrow’s leaders. Santander Universities is a global network of around 1,000 universities from 17 countries - Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Germany, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Russia, Singapore, Spain, United Kingdom, Uruguay and USA.
Each year, around 40 UCL students benefit from Santander scholarships and awards. Funding is also available to support UCL staff to establish partnerships with universities in the Santander Universities network.
And, of course, all UCL students and staff are able to access the special banking deals offered to those studying or working at a member of the Santander Universities network.
The Santander Master's scholarships aim to assist the most academically able students from leading universities to pursue a Master’s degree programme at UCL. Students must be from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Spain or Uruguay to apply.
Study Abroad Scholarships
Funds are available to undergraduate and postgraduate students to study or research in the UK or overseas.
