Madrid, 19 January 2022 - PRESS RELEASE

Banco Santander continues to strengthen its commitment to lifelong learning and specifically to language training as a key skill for employability and, through Santander Universities, in partnership with the British Council, launches a new online edition of the Santander Languages Scholarships | Online English Courses - British Council with 5,000 scholarships which are open to anyone over 18 years of age and resident in 13 countries (Argentina, Germany, Chile, Brazil, Mexico, the US, Spain, Peru, Colombia, Portugal, Poland, the United Kingdom and Uruguay).

The scholarships offer training which is fully delivered online and covers all costs for beneficiaries. Anyone interested can enrol at this linkon the Becas Santanderwebsite until 29 March 2022.

Diego Vidal, a Chilean researcher, specialising in Politics and International Affairs, took part in the previous round of the programme. Diego was motivated to apply because, as he states, "in the area of international relations, it is essential to speak English. You need to be constantly working to improve your level in order to enhance your international career prospects."

There are five levels of training available ranging from beginner level (A1) to advanced level (C1) and candidates are allocated according to their current knowledge of English. Each training programme lasts for 12 weeks, from April to July, and includes 12 online sessions with British Council tutors. Candidates are also able to access up to 48 hours of interactive videos and self-learning activities. The objective of the scholarship is to improve beneficiaries' employability skills and increase their prospects of accessing the international labour market.

Participants will increase their skills to better engage in workplace situations, such as meetings or talks as well as benefit from the opportunity to network internationally with professionals and students from a range of disciplines and countries. Once participants have successfully finished their courses they will receive a British Council course completion certificate.
