Santander internships

logoSantander Universities have partnered with Kingston since 2013, creating hundreds of opportunities for students, local businesses and the community. 

Santander has funded internships and travel grants, and other exciting projects like Saturday Engineering Club and the Enterprise! Education programme.

Internships

Santander supported 25 internships at seven work placements in the 2015/16 academic year.

 "I truly believe programmes such as this are extremely important in enabling graduates to 'dip their toe' into a professional working environment. It can be extremely difficult for graduates and there is a real benefit to the host organisation. My interns were extremely pro-active and did not need a great deal of management. They had an energy and enthusiasm about them that really provided a boost and 'feel good factor' to my staff who got to work with the interns."

Scholarships and mobility support

Santander scholarships have helped students from all parts of the globe to study at Kingston and mobility awards have allowed British students to study abroad and bring a world of knowledge back to the Kingston classroom. 

Ruth Angelica Lizarazo, MSc Pharmaceutical Science with Management Studies

"The Santander scholarship gave me the best opportunity to achieve my academic and personal goals. 

Kingston University offered me international socialization, good teachers and excellent facilities. The combination of science and management studies has prepared me to handle any kind of challenge in my job.

On completing my studies, I returned to Colombia, my home country, and secured a good position as Director of Research and Development at Dermclar Laboratories.  In my role, I am required to handle negotiations in both Spanish and English, liaise with international suppliers (Asia, Europe, Africa) and solve scientific problems.

Many Thanks Santander!"
