Companies/organisations offering sponsorship for degree study
Sponsorship can provide an ideal solution to funding your studies. It’s worth exploring the websites of organisations you may be interested in working for in the future, or contacting them direct, to ask whether they offer sponsorship opportunities and to find out which degree disciplines are eligible. As with all funding sources, competition is fierce, so make sure you apply early.
Types of sponsorship vary; for instance some organisations may support students throughout their entire course whilst others may provide support for the final year of study following a successful work experience placement or internship.
Here are some examples of organisations that have provided sponsorship to students:
Sponsorship following industrial placements in business, finance and engineering roles.
Sponsorship on completion of placements including commerce, finance, logistics, HR, metallurgy, process technology, research and development and human resources management.
Sponsorship opportunities have included six week paid work experience placements each summer together with support during studies.
Defence university sponsorship focuses particularly on engineering, medicine and dentistry. You may also like to read about opportunities to train with the armed forces whilst you are a student.
