The Martingale Development Programme

Academic and career development

As a Martingale Scholar, you will have access to a multi-year programme of support, including leadership training, career development and engagement opportunities. Through the programme, you will gain access to a network of leading universities and businesses, including research and industry placements, and will have opportunities to meet with leading figures from across academia and industry.

Martingale also strategically collaborates with charities in the education and social mobility sector, giving Scholars the unique opportunity to participate in community engagement such as tutoring and mentoring programmes, building further skills while supporting young people interested in STEM.

Development programmes and Solve for X

There are two programmes depending on your stage of postgraduate study: the Masters Development Programme or the PhD Leadership Programme.

Scholars also take part in Solve for X: Where Academia Meets Industry, a holistic approach to skill-building and career progression, with Scholars participating in a residential retreat featuring group work, training sessions, and culminating in pitch presentations to an expert panel.

Be part of a pioneering cohort of future STEM leaders

You will be part of a pioneering cohort of postgraduate students, who will become colleagues and friends in the years ahead.

While you may be placed at different universities, you will have a common purpose and shared experiences, with regular opportunities to meet as a cohort throughout your course. The programme is focused on your time as a postgraduate student; however, we hope you will consider yourself a Martingale Scholar for life, becoming part of the Martingale Alumni Programme.
