Weʼre raising £500 to Help pay university tuition fees and living costs which will amount to around £7500 a year when student finance will only loan £3500 a year.
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.
In late September 2018 I will be beginning my university course. I have received a conditional offer of 2 A*s and an A in my A Levels to study a Mathematics MMath degree at Durham University. Having achieved 7A*s and 4As in my GCSEs and 4As at AS level as well as an A* (97%) in my Maths A Level I sat in one year instead of two, I feel I have worked hard to go to a good university but affording the living costs will be a struggle.
Student finance will only cover around £3500 of living expenses however it is estimated to cost around £7000-8000 per year as I will be living away from home.
I would greatly appreciate any support that would mean I could afford living costs at university and I am very thankful for any donations.
