Oxford University welcomes 44 Brazilian university students

4th September 2012. University of Oxford, one of the most prestigious institutions in the world, is taking part for the first time in the international academic exchange programme promoted by Santander, through its Santander Universities Global Division.

The current edition of the TOP UK programme, which the bank has been running for 3 years through its Santander Universities global division and which on this occasion has been coordinated by Sao Paulo University (USP), has offered 44 Brazilian students the opportunity to improve their knowledge of the English language and British culture at University of Oxford. The programme included academic as well as cultural activities, such as a visit to Windsor Castle.

Jamil Hannouche, director of Santander Universities in Brazil, said: “For some time now we have been exploring new pathways for academic exchange between Brazil and the UK, and we have now achieved something unique. This year's edition of the TOP UK programme has been designed especially by University of Oxford, exclusively for Santander Universities. We are very proud”.

Luis Juste, director of Santander Universities in the UK, spoke to us about the TOP UK programme: “The number of Brazilian students choosing to continue their higher education in the UK is growing every year. We hope that initiatives like this will strengthen the bonds between universities on both sides of the Atlantic”.

The Brazilian universities taking part in this initiative are: Fundação Getúlio Vargas Rio de Janeiro (FGV-RJ), Pontifícia Universidade do Rio Grande do Sul (PUC-RS), Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo (PUC-SP), Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP), Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP), Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP), Universidade de Fortaleza (UNIFOR) and Universidade de São Paulo (USP).

Through its Santander Universities Global Division, Santander has collaborated with universities for more than 15 years on a unique global initiative which distinguishes it from other national and international banks and financial institutions. The bank supports the Higher Education sector in such areas as teaching and research, international cooperation, knowledge and technology transfer, entrepreneurial initiatives, student mobility and innovation.

This is a network where universities from all over the world can meet and engage in dialogue. ‘Santander Universities’ was introduced in the UK in 2007 and the bank is already collaborating with fifty-seven British Universities and Higher Education Institutions, with agreements focused in promoting international exchange, entrepreneurial activities and the mobility of students and researchers within the network.
