Santander Universities UK has joined forces with Finance Unlocked - a comprehensive, on-demand learning platform built specifically for financial education. They’re running a new and exciting learning experience for Black and Black Mixed undergraduate students in the UK (including students who have recently graduated in the 2019/2020 academic year).
3,000 Black and Black Mixed undergraduate students and recent graduates from all UK universities will have the opportunity to complete an eight-hour online course provided by Finance Unlocked. This will cover a range of concepts including green finance, blockchain, private equity, financial crises, and more.
Participants will be able to enhance their financial skills through videos and access to real-life case studies. Upon completion of the content and online quizzes, students with an average score (across all online quizzes) of 80% or more will have the opportunity to win a £1,500 Santander Scholarship.
30 of these students will be randomly selected using an online random winner selection platform. Students and recent graduates will receive a digital certificate upon completion of the eight-hours content and quizzes to celebrate their participation in the programme.
Applications open on 10 January and close on Friday 5 March, with the programme beginning on Tuesday 30 March and running for six weeks.
