New agreement of Santander with the University of Portsmouth

  1. 1. NEWS New agreement of Santander with the University of Portsmouth London, 8th April 2015-. The University of Portsmouth has signed a partnership agreement with Banco Santander to support scholarships, travel bursaries and internships. The three year agreement, which amounts to over £150,000, will also provide the opportunity for Portsmouth to actively engage with the international network of Santander Universities. The funding means students will be able to take part in international exchange programmes and entrepreneurial activities. It will also help current students in receipt of a bursary to progress to postgraduate study and will offer travel bursaries for PhD students to visit overseas universities which are partners of Santander Universities. In addition, Santander will part fund 10 internships in local Small and Medium Enterprises for students or recent graduates of the University. The agreement was signed by Professor Graham Galbraith, Vice-Chancellor of the University and Simon Bray, Managing Director of Santander Universities UK at an event hosted by the University’s Innovation Space - an office space created to inspire and nurture entrepreneurs and start-ups. Professor Galbraith said: “The University is committed to forging strong relationships with business and industry so I’m delighted to join the international network of Santander Universities. This partnership will enhance the student experience, provide support and opportunities for students and staff to broaden their research activities and, through growing the University’s international reach, extend the impact of our world class research.” Simon Bray, Managing Director of Santander Universities UK, said: “It is a pleasure for Santander to welcome the University of Portsmouth as a new UK partner. The collaboration we begin today will open the doors to many students to study and carry out research overseas as well as give them the chance to take a first step in the job market. This is a long term agreement and we look forward to working together to make a difference on this campus.” Santander Universities maintains a stable alliance with close to 1,200 academic institutions in 20 countries. This is a network where universities from all over the world can meet and engage in dialogue.
