£260raised of £3,000 target by 8 supporters

    Weʼve raised £260 to Help towards 2nd year Course Fees for my MA in Collections Care & Conservation Management.

    Funded on Sunday, 22nd October 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Shortly after my son was born I decided to change my career and retrain in something that I love. I returned to University as a single parent and completed my Degree. Following that, I have now been working in the heritage sector for almost 5 years.
    I'm keen to progress my career in a field that I love and so decided to undertake an MA in Collections Care & Conservation Management at West Dean College. The college is internationally regarded as a center of excellence in conservation and my tutor is an expert in her field. The opportunity is fantastic!
    I have self financed my first years course fees with the intention of taking out Student Finance for the second. Sadly, due to a peculiarity in their systems, I have discovered I am ineligible and must now try to fund my 2nd year some other way.
    As you can imagine, I have been looking for every sort of bursary or grant that I may be eligible for, but I am unsure if this will be enough.
    The £3000 target is aspirational will (hopefully!) reduce if I am lucky enough to receive any funds from elsewhere.
    I've worked so hard in the first year and learnt so much. I really want to see my studies through to the end and move towards realising my career goals. I want to show my son that anything is possible if you try your hardest.
