Our corporate partners

The business community provides us with charitable income that enriches students’ lives, enhances our campus and furthers world-class research.

The business community provides us with charitable income that enriches students’ lives, enhances our campus and furthers world-class research. Our corporate partners support bright minds by offering financial support, paid internships and skills development.

Lloyds, for example, provides scholarships to students from low-income households to give them the best chance to realise their potential. In 2019, the Lloyds Scholars programme won the upReach Student Social Mobility Award for Highest Impact Employer Initiative for the second year running.

We also recently celebrated a milestone in our partnership with Santander Universities, as their total support has now surpassed £2 million and benefits nearly 300 staff and students each year. For more than a decade they have funded a range of initiatives, from a student dyslexia centre and a languages library, to scholarships and mobility awards that enable our doctoral students to promote their research internationally.

Productive partnerships

Here are just some of the ways our corporate partners are making a difference.


Providing opportunities

The world’s largest brewer, AB InBev, has awarded scholarships to Bath students for over four years, helping those from low-income backgrounds with essential financial support and paid internships, both in the UK and overseas.

Corporate scholarships enable the business community to connect with students from an early stage, in a meaningful way.

Women in STEM

We are narrowing the gender gap in STEM with help from J.P. Morgan, Atkins and Schlumberger. Through funding scholarships for students studying science, technology, engineering or mathematics, to providing industrial placements and supporting outreach opportunities within the community – together we are empowering current students and future generations.

Research excellence

Our Centre for Doctoral Training in Accountable, Responsible and Transparent AI is proud to partner with DeepMind, part of Google, in educating the next generation of experts in artificial intelligence and its ethical implications.

The £250,000 gift supports PhD students in the continued advancement of their research and enables them to work with fellow specialists across the globe.

Transforming teaching

The Day Lewis Pharmacy Management Simulation Suite enables students to develop leadership skills by running a simulated pharmacy.

Students also gain valuable experience of offering clinical services and advice to patients. This innovative facility was made possible by a £100,000 gift from the Day Lewis Pharmacy in memory of co-founder and Bath honorary graduate Dr Kirit Patel MBE.
