Universities scheme

The Universities Scheme was set up by the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) in 2005, with the aim of encouraging undergraduates and other university members to benefit from Freemasonry.

There are now over 85 Lodges in the UK that are open to university members aged 18 upwards, including undergraduates, postgraduates, senior staff members and alumni. In South Wales we have two lodges that are part of the Universities Scheme – Universities Lodge (Cardiff) and Singleton Lodge (Swansea).

To apply to be a Freemason through the Universities Scheme, simply respond ‘Yes’ to the corresponding question on the application form, and we’ll do the rest.
