Help me finish my university degree

Help me raise a total of £22,790 so that I can become a Pharmacist. This will allow me to pursue my desired profession and contribute to society.

My parents had saved all my university expenses prior to me starting university in the UK. They managed to support me for many years of studying in the UK as an overseas student. Things took a dramatic turn following various political events, where heavy economic sanctions were imposed on Iran. This meant that the value of our currency in Iran tumbled. My parents life savings and the value of their business was able to cover more than enough of my education expenses. However, following the sanctions our currency became worthless, and my parents ability to pay for my education became impossible, meaning they have had to sell possessions and apply for loans to help cover shortcomings which has left them in debt. To help out, I have worked part-time during my course and full-time over this summer to contribute as much money as I possibly can towards the tuition fees.

We have up to now already paid in excess of £73,000 towards my education, excluding accomodation and living expenses. I have managed to pass all of my subjects with merit and distinction, getting a first in my second and third year results. I have completed the majority of my course, and only have one year left of my studies.  

If I do not raise the required amount all the money so far spent on my education would have been wasted. The university has given me as much support as they can offer, giving numerous extensions on payment deadlines and offering hardship funding however, if I cannot settle the outstanding debt of £7528 I will not be able to progress to the final year. All the studying and hardship that I have been through would amount to nothing. Being an overseas student means that I will not have the opportunity to return to complete my credits in the future. It also means that I will not be able to stay, defer my studies so I can save and return to study. This is unfortunately a make or break situation for me.  

Having completed three years of a four-year course I only require another year of funding to complete my studies. My whole future life would dramatically change with this help.
