Santander and Goethe-University in Frankfurt

  • The Welcome Centre of the University is in the focus of the promotion
  • The Bank, through Santander Universities Germany, provides 20 Scholarships for students of the Goethe-University

Mönchengladbach, July 13th, 2016. The Goethe University Frankfurt and Santander Consumer Bank AG have signed an extension of the cooperation agreement they already had since 2012. The President of the University, Prof. Birgitta Wolff and Fernando Silva, General Manager of Santander Consumer Bank AG, in Frankfurt am Main, signed the agreement.

"We are very happy to have such a renowned and reliable partner like Goethe University of Frankfurt for the present future", said Fernando Silva at the signing ceremony. "Universities make a huge contribution to society."

The Welcome Centre at the Goethe University (GWC) will be a priority area for the next few years for Santander. It is, since 2012, set up as information centre with two separated services for international scientists. One is delivering general information and the other is serving as facility services centre.

In addition, the existing support for teaching Spanish will be continued at the Institute of Romance Languages and Literatures at the Department of Modern Philology. Moreover, the bank will provide 20 additional German scholarships for students at the Goethe University.

Prof. Birgitta Wolff, University´s President, highlighted: "The Welcome Centre will help scientists from abroad to find their way more easily at the University as well as in Frankfurt. That is a wonderful advantage. Therefore, it is invaluable for the Goethe University to count on Santander as a partner."

Santander supports the Goethe University in Frankfurt on behalf of "Santander Universities Germany", which is part of the global corporate area "Santander Universities". Since 2011, and as of the Banks´s social commitment, Santander Universities in Germany has as of today eleven University Partners as well as a collaboration with the German Association of University Professors and Lecturers (DHV).
