The University has enjoyed a longstanding partnership with Santander, with much of our focus on Santander Universities Scholarships and Internships worth almost £100,000 per year.
These enhance the Plymouth student experience including internationally, employability and career development and the internships not only give our students valuable work experience but add genuine value back to the SME community.
Bank colleagues frequently present guest lectures and run workshops for Plymouth students, and participate in student experience competitions as judges or mentors. This not only enhances our students' experience but develops their personal and professional skills.
Santander Universities Scholarships
Santander Universities Scholarships are available if you're an undergraduate or postgraduate student and in some cases, staff can apply too.
They include funding for research projects in the UK and overseas, language exchange programmes and initiatives to promote volunteering and the development of employability skills.

As part of their corporate staff volunteering scheme, Santander's energetic fundraising activities support our world-class research in Brain Tumour Research and other neurodegenerative diseases, and together we are dementia champions in the city.
Santander encourages its staff and their families to engage in life at the University – from free eye tests at the Centre for Eyecare Excellence to becoming a Friend of The Arts Institute, the University’s public arts programme.
