Studying Business Management with Finance

“When I left sixth form, university wasn’t an option and a lot of my friends in similar circumstances were not going to university. However, I missed learning and I wanted to do something that would give me more options. It was a bit of a surprise for my mum when I came home from my apprenticeship and told her I was going to university.

My loan only covers my accommodation and my part time job gives me just enough to live within my means. However, there isn’t much else left once everything has been paid for and I find saving for anything that may come up extremely hard. I worked full time the year before I came to university to help support my studies.

“I feel honoured that Sir Bob Murray CBE has chosen to support me during my education. Receiving this scholarship means I won’t have to worry about my financial situation as much and I can focus on my studies. I am going to use this money to pay for books and stationery, and other unexpected expenses or opportunities which come up during my university life.”
