Santander Scholarships

Santander Scholarships available for Cardiff Met students and staff with Santander Universities

Spend time overseas at another university within the Santander Universities Network!​

Cardiff Metropolitan University joined the Santander U​niversities Global Division in July 2012. As a result, we have some excellent Santander Scholarships to offer our current students and staff.

There are two types of scholarships available: up to £2000 and £2000-5000, which cover travel, accommodation and subsistence. These are available to students at undergraduate, master, doctorate and post-doctorate levels of study and academic and administrative staff. For details on how to apply, see below.​

 Applications are now closed.

Where can you go?

Visit any one of over 1000 universities!​ The Santander Universities Network has so many countries to choose from! Please see full list of universities here.

What could you do?

The scholarship gives you the opportunity to visit another university in the Santander network. It aims to benefit you academically and professionally, improve international cooperation and provide you with the opportunity to experience life at another university.

As for activities during your visit, there is no definitive list of things you can apply to do, this is up to YOU! You just need to show in your application that the activity will be of academic or professional benefit to you or your school/unit, and it must take place at one of the Santander Universities. With over 1000 universities participating, you will be sure to find something and somewhere that will really appeal to you!

There are many different activities you could take part in but here are a few examples from previous years to give you some ideas:

The above list is not exhaustive, you can suggest something new!

Students: If applying to attend a short course, summer school or any activity that involves payment for registering, we recommend that you do not apply for the activity until the outcome of your scholarship application is known. Please supply details of how you would apply for your chosen activity in the application form instead of the proof of acceptance.
