Shanghai Tuscan Lodge


Universities Scheme

In May 2021 the Shanghai Tuscan Lodge will be honoured to join the Metropolitan Grand Lodge Universities Scheme to promote and strengthen young students joining Freemasonry.

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

The Universities Scheme was introduced in 2005 with the objective of  “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, with currently 20 in the Metropolitan area (London) alone.

The Grand Master, His Royal Highness 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.”
