Universities Scheme

The Universities Scheme is a pioneering attempt by the United Grand Lodge of England to help to forge links between well placed, enthusiastic Lodges and the many students and other young people who are seeking to become involved in freemasonry but who may not know where to begin.

The Universities Scheme was introduced in 2005 with the objective ‘To establish and/or enhance arrangements and opportunities for undergraduates and other university members to enjoy Freemasonry’ as Oxford and Cambridge have done for nearly 200 years.

There are now over 70 Universities Scheme Lodges across England, Wales and Overseas Districts.

The Grand Master, HRH the Duke of Kent, states “A real benefit the Scheme confers is having young intelligent men joining us who will, we hope, contribute greatly to the future of the Craft, as potential leaders and sources of inspiration.”
