The Sir Bob Murray CBE Scholarship has given me a great opportunity to succeed at university. I am very thankful to Sir Bob Murray for giving me this opportunity - because of this scholarship I will be able to fulfil my ambitions both at university and in my career

Sohail shakes hands with Sir Bob Murray CBE

Studying Accounting & Finance

Most of Sohail’s friends went into full time work after school but instead he was the first in his family to attend university. Coming from a single parent family, his family have a low household income and are unable to offer him much financial support.

Sohail commutes to Leeds Beckett from Bradford each day to make sure that he can buy everything he needs for his course. The scholarship will help him with his travel costs and with course resources, books and stationary. Sohail wants to go on to work as an accountant after graduating, and would like to still live and work in Leeds.
