Weʼre raising £7,000 to help to fund my tuition fee and living expenses for my 1st year at medical school
- Birmingham, UK
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.
After 9 consecutive years of rejected applications to medical school in the UK; I decided to apply to study medicine in Europe. I now have an offer of a place at Ostrava University in the Czech Republic, however they require for me to pay my tuition fee prior to enrolment in September 2018, otherwise I will have to give up my place. I am hoping once I graduate to practice as a doctor in the UK, as the course is recognised by the General Medical Council, within the NHS, which will help with increasing the number of doctors in the UK as all of you may have heard in the news recently that there is a shortage of doctors.
I've tried applying for 32 scholarship programmes and countless grants to help raise the funds needed, however I have not been able to raise anything. Please help me keep my dream alive to help save and improve lives.
