Support University of Gibraltar
“Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we can deliver academic excellence and break down some of the barriers to higher education for those who need it.”

Our Funding Priorities
Widening access to education
Higher education can make a real difference to people and the communities they live in. It is this belief, together with our commitment to academic excellence that underpins everything we do.
While there are many individual and societal benefits of a university education, there are still segments of society to whom going to University is simply not an option.
Scholarships have the power to break down some of the barriers to education while bursaries can encourage sustained student success through their studies. They are both meaningful ways of making a direct impact on people’s lives.
Enhancing the student experience & improving our facilities
As we grow, so do the needs of our students. Whether its cutting-edge laboratory equipment, enhanced social spaces, developing our curriculum, student support or state-of-the-art IT suites, maintaining and developing the highest quality student facilities and resources takes investment.
We understand that delivering an excellent student experience goes beyond the fabric of a building. Making a donation to our student experience fund can support activities that enhance a student’s journey and help them achieve more upon graduation.
Donations of any size can make a difference to the student experience. Generous donations from Gibraltar-based trusts have helped us design and deliver a new social space for students and enable large investments into our library.
Building links within the community
We believe that actively engaging with our local community is at the core of our success. Most of our research seminars and events are open to the public and make an impact within to the communities we reach.
Since opening our doors in 2015, we have welcomed hundreds of guests to our Europa Point Campus through various outreach activities and events including our popular Gibraltar History Lectures and Beacon Professor Lectures.
By making a donation you can build on the work so far and contribute to shaping future initiatives that ensure the University is at the centre of Gibraltar’s communities.
Academic excellence through research
We believe that research partnerships can bridge the gap between academia and industry. Research-informed businesses are better-placed to lead and adapt to a demanding marketplace. Through the commissioning of bespoke research at the University of Gibraltar, you can access relevant and valuable knowledge that can give your business the edge.
Research can be commissioned for most industries and sectors and the type of insight will depend on what you are looking to achieve.

A gift in your will provides the opportunity to continue to transform lives through world class research, through the improvement of resources and buildings, and by giving opportunity to the next generation of students.
