Financial solutions for specific groups
Banco Santander offers a range of products and services for specific groups.
The most noteworthy are as follows:
The Bank offers products for university students with favourable terms and conditions to help them with their studies. International mobility financing programmes area special feature, and they include university fees, books, transport and accommodation.
In addition, Santander has reached agreements with a number of universities for the use of a student smart card (tarjeta universitaria inteligente, TUI ) as a form of student ID to access facilities, perform administrative tasks and borrow from libraries. The TUI also works as a public transport pass and can be enabled for other optional services, such as ATM services or as a debit card. This smart card was launched in 1995 and is now to be found in more than 300 universities in 13 countries.
The Bank continued its university internship programme in conjunction with Spanish SMEs, with paid internships for students. The programme has a dual objective: to complement students’ university learning with work experience, and to help them find jobs, as well as supporting SMEs.
