Santander Universities network
Swansea University is part of the Santander Universities network, an international group of universities with three goals in common: internationalisation, transfer of knowledge, and fostering of entrepreneurial skills.
The partnership, established in 2014, enables the University to develop and strengthen collaborative links internationally as well as create new opportunities for staff and students.
The agreement, developed through the Santander Universities Global Division includes four scholarships for international students studying at Swansea University and 15 travel bursaries for Swansea staff and students to visit overseas universities which are also part of the network. There is also an entrepreneurial support fund for up to 20 new student start-ups and an internship scheme which places students with local small and medium sized companies, allowing them to gain valuable work experience.
