I’m Marija Mihajlovic Shipley. I am a Serbian and British national and also recent graduate from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff.  The dissertation I wrote in my final year there was about Medieval Byzantine frescoes. As a result, the renowned Professor of Byzantine Art history  at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London has now offered to mentor me through my PhD studies. But first I am required to complete The MA course in History of Art at the Courtauld.  I cannot stress enough how prestigious The Courtauld Institute of Art is and how big a privilege it is to be accepted there. This is an opportunity I would not wish to miss. However, saying that, I do now face the serious financial difficulty of studying and living in London for the duration of my forthcoming MA Course. My Master course fees alone are almost eight thousand pounds and living costs in London are also not cheap.  As an unemployed mother of a one-year-old daughter, it will be impossible for me to finance this myself in the coming academic year. Therefore I would like to request financial assistance from you. Any help you could offer could make my dreams of completing a PhD at the Courtauld Institute of Art , a reality.
