Employability, key to collaboration between Banco Santander and University of Wolverhampton (Disponible solo en inglés)

London, 9th March 2016-. Santander UK has signed a new agreement to fund scholarships and other activities with the University of Wolverhampton. The agreement will see the bank support student entrepreneurship and internationalisation at the university through a scholarship scheme over three years.

Each year of the agreement it will fund two students on an international study scholarship and a minimum of five students for international graduate work experience in Europe and South America.

It will also fund a new Business Breakfast Club with the University of Wolverhampton Business School, create a Business Plan Challenge and help fund the Students’ Union Employment Support Fund, which helps students with cash awards to covers costs of interviews and training courses.

The agreement was signed by University of Wolverhampton Vice-Chancellor, Professor Geoff Layer and Robin Foale, Managing Director Santander Universities UK. Professor Ian Oakes, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wolverhampton, said: “The University is delighted to be working with such a global name as Santander."

“As a university we place a great emphasis on making our students highly employable through providing them with the skills, knowledge and attributes to be industry and work ready. It is not just about them getting a job but about getting them the career they want. This agreement provides a great boost to that employability agenda through scholarships, placements, work experience and internships, which make our students even more attractive to prospective employers.”

Robin Foale, managing director of Santander Universities UK, said: “This new agreement marks the beginning of a strong ongoing relationship between Santander and Wolverhampton. Education is one of the greatest assets of a country and ultimately has a crucial impact in the welfare of local communities. The funding agreed today will go towards numerous activities, encouraging students to study abroad, funding internships in SMEs and also providing young people with the tools and skills necessary to deal with the problems they are facing in today’s job market, which is now more competitive than ever.”
