Globally, the division has to date invested more than €1.7bn in the shape of scholarships, travel grants, support for entrepreneurship, special projects and non-academic awards. This makes it one of the world’s largest corporate investors in higher education.

Santander Universities UK’s mission is to support students across 3 key areas: education, entrepreneurship and employability.
