Santander bank has generously given the University of Westminster £4,000 towards travel grants for postgraduate students.

These grants are intended to help students take up opportunities abroad, such as internships, conferences, PhD research and other events related to their field of study. The grants are open to Postgraduate students.

The University of Westminster's award-winning scholarship scheme is one of the largest among UK universities and the travel grants will further enhance our funding offers to students.

The University is very grateful to Santander bank for this donation, which will enable less well-off students access opportunities they may otherwise have been unable to take up.
