Lord Weidenfeld was born in Vienna on September 13th 1919 and in the academic year 2019-20 we will be celebrating his original vision for our unique global scholarships.

My vision was to have a facility at one of the great universities of the world, to train people for whom not enough has been done to prepare them for positions of leadership”

Watch: this video which captures some of our alumni and supporters’ memories of him.
