Hear from our students
“Thanks to the Santander scholarship I was able to come from Colombia to undertake my MSc Entrepreneurship. I found the application process really easy since it was online, straight forward and all the requirements had been very well explained on the College’s website. The scholarship gave me the opportunity to enjoy not only a great academic experience, but also a great time in the United Kingdom.”
- Lorena, MSc Entrepreneurship
