Portsmouth students can get involved in a big giveaway with Santander Universities. 10 awards of £1,000 are available exclusively to University of Portsmouth students, meaning you have a great chance of winning!

All students can enter including undergraduates, postgraduates, part-time and full-time students. You also don’t need to be a Santander customer to enter.

Whether it’s textbooks, accommodation, or other living expenses, this prize draw can help you shape your time at university the way you want it to go.

The lucky winners can use the Brighter Futures Grant to support their university experience: spend the money on learning resources to help with revision before exams, or put it towards the cost of accommodation or bills to help with living expenses.

To be in with a chance of winning all you need to do is register on the Santander Open Academy platform, enrol in the opportunity and select "University of Portsmouth" on the application form.
