To fund my postgraduate studies in the UK

by Mustafa Aldarat in Manchester, England, United Kingdom

Hello everyone, 

My name is Mustafa, 33 years old, and I am from Libya. I have always been dreaming of continuing my education in the field of computer science. I have a diploma in science which is lower than a bachelor degree. In my country, to get a good salary job and create a career you need a bachelor degree or above (i.e. Master). So, after getting my diploma I had to work to collect funding for my higher education abroad. At that time, I was 25 years old, everything was going as planned until the war started in my country and lasted 8 years. Today, I am 33 years old and I have not started my career yet! I have tried to apply to local institutions but I couldn’t get an offer because of age restrictions. I still have the dream to continue my education abroad, so recently I have tried to apply for some scholarships but I was unsuccessful because of the same reason, age! I have an offer to study a one year master course from a university in the UK, and I was lucky to be accepted as most international universities do not recognize my current educational degree, but I cannot afford paying the tuition fees for such course.  For a while, I lost the hope to catch my dreams until someone, thankfully, suggested to fund my studies with crowdfunding. So I had to try.

Thank you everyone for your support.
