University Seminar, Santander supports student entrepreneurship and internationalisation - SantanderCB

Santander UK has signed a deal with the University of Wolverhampton to provide support with student entrepreneurship and internationalisation. The bank will deliver a scholarship scheme worth a total of £120,000 over three years, giving two students each year the opportunity to study abroad, and a minimum of five further students the chance to gain graduate work experience in Europe and South America. Santander will also provide the funds for a new Business Breakfast Club with the University of Wolverhampton Business School, and also create a Business Plan Challenge and help fund the Students' Union Employment Support Fund. SMEs will also be offered an additional £15,500 over a year to support work placements and internships. The agreement was signed by Robin Foale, managing director of Santander Universities UK, who said: 'This new agreement marks the beginning of a strong ongoing relationship between Santander and Wolverhampton.' Education is one of the greatest assets of a country and ultimately has a crucial impact in the welfare of local communities. The funding agreed today will go towards numerous activities, encouraging students to study abroad, funding internships in SMEs and also providing young people with the tools and skills necessary to deal with the problems they are facing in today's job market, which is now more competitive than ever.'
