Hello, my name is Innocent Ocholi. I’m a hardworking final year student of Computing (Bsc). I have received a mail from my University stating that I will not graduate in a few months without completing my tuition. I came to the UK as a direct entry student after completing my Aptech Computer Education. I was supposed to have finished last year but my CAS indicated 2 years instead of 1. I made a mistake by concluding it will be changed after I get here but it didn't happen. My struggles with the University Admissions is a whole different story. My aged father had sent me to study here with the whole of his retirement money hoping I’ll finish in a year, he doesn’t have the complete funds for a second year. It will break his heart to see me return empty-handed despite his sacrifice. He scraped for my accommodation and feeding while I worked as a software developer with South Ham District Council as an IT student. This option assisted me to clear most of my debts but it is now over, and I must look for other means.


The exchange rate in my country, when compared to the GBP, amounts to nothing. Currently having 7 months to complete my studies, the University has advised me to quit if I don’t have my remaining tuition. I am actively looking for part time jobs but can’t find any. Being in full-time education disqualifies me for a loan to pay my fees: £11,250. I never thought It would come to this. I was raised to be ashamed of publicly asking for help, let alone money, but here I am seeking your assistance. Any amount is a stepping stone towards completing my education. I hope you achieve your dreams and heart desires as you make my dream come true. Thank you.
