Studying BA (Hons) English & Media 

Alanya Wilson is a BA (Hons) English & Media undergraduate at Leeds Beckett and will use the financial support from the university to buy textbooks and get involved in university trips to MediaCity in Manchester.

Alanya has always been naturally good at English, and when she started studying Media as well during Year 12 fell in love with the subject. She’s currently working 30 hours a week at ASDA to support herself through university.

There was a point in the year when I though I’m not even going to go to [to University] I can’t afford to. My parents can’t afford to send me money, and the student loan doesn’t cover my costs. The Scholarship will make things a lot easier for me and take the pressure off, I’ll be able to get involved with student life a lot better, but books and take part in co-curricular activities.
