Hi I'm Lucy, I am currently on a computer science degree focusing on computing for games and I have been offered a place on a masters degree for artificial intelligence again focusing on NPC's within games. Unfortunately masters degrees are not very well funded in the UK and I don't come from a very well off family. Student finance will pay for the course but I won't have enough to pay for my rent, bills and food as well. I've applied to a few charities and foundations that provide grants but computer science isn't well invested in ... yet.
I'm hoping to become an AI programmer for a games company after completing the course, which has always been my dream job.
