The money will go a long way. It will relieve a lot of stress which will allow me to focus on my degree. It’s going to help me a long way in achieving what I want to accomplish.

Matthew celebrating receiving his scholarship

Studying Primary Education

Matthew gave up his career as a gas engineer to pursue his dream of becoming a primary school teacher. He will use the scholarship to support himself during his studies and to fund work as a volunteer teacher in South Africa this summer.

Matthew is a mature student whose decision to give up work to retrain at university has had a significant impact on his finances.
