University of London alumnus József Váradi has donated over £1 million to the University, to provide scholarships to support up to 100 distance and flexible learning students over the next ten years.
József completed an LLM with the University via distance learning in 2014, specializing in International Business Law. He is the CEO and co-founder of Wizz Air.
The Váradi Scholarships will continue the University of London’s founding mission of opening access to education and connecting worlds.
