The Futures Fund

The Futures Fund was established in 2003 to support students at the University to develop their careers and aspirations. Supported by alumni, friends and supporters, the fund has continued to award support in three key areas to students studying at the University.  Every donation has made a difference, giving much needed support for our students to unlock their potential and create opportunities that take their career ambitions to the next stage.

The Futures Fund has already made a huge difference in offering financial support to enable students to go beyond their comfort zones to work on self sourced placements in London or gain experience of sectors overseas. 
Please read our application guidance notes before starting your application.
