Santander Universities Personal Development Award

Brief description

The Santander Universities Personal Development Award has been created in partnership with Santander Universities. Thanks to their generous funding we're able to offer all students and those who have graduated in the last 12 months the opportunity to apply for one of 20 £1,000 awards.

This award can be used to fund a personal development course, qualification or internship of your choice. It could be a coding course, a project management qualification or an internship with a charity, SME or start up. You may be learning a language, or want to know how to market your new business.

If there’s anything that you feel would get you closer to your personal and career goals, let us know, and you could be awarded up to £1,000 to cover or pay towards the cost of your course fees or an internship. 


The Santander Universities Personal Development Award is open to any current students as well as those who have graduated in the last 12 months. 

Both undergraduate and postgraduate students are eligible.
