Santander Universities logoBU’s partnership with Santander Universities began in 2009 and, since then, more than £1m in funding has been granted to support projects from internships to international travel and student hardship.

In addition, Santander has funded once-in-a-lifetime trips for our football players and given students valuable advice on starting their own business.
