It has always been my dream to attend university, as it opens different gateways for your future. It is my ambition to become a chartered accountant and Leeds Beckett is the perfect place for me to do that, but coming to university was a difficult decision as there was no-one in my family who had been before to inspire me, and the costs of living and studying were a big concern. Thanks to the support of this scholarship, I can now focus more on my education without any money worries, and be able to go on and achieve my goals.

Studying Accounting & Finance

Aamna chose to come to Leeds Beckett after attending an open day where she was impressed with both the breadth of the range of study available at the university.

She will use the scholarship to help her buy core textbooks and materials that she needs for her studies. She will also use the money to help her pay for her to get to university as she commutes each day from Sheffield, which she finds hard to balance with buying the resources she needs.

Five years after graduating Aamna hopes to be working in a chartered accountancy firm and be well on the way to qualifying as a chartered accountant.
