    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.


    What is the money for and why that much? I have recently been accepted to study for an MSc in psychology, at the University of Stirling. However, as I have already obtained an MA, I am not entitled to a postgraduate loan. Unfortunately, I do have any other means of financial support. I would, therefore, be very grateful to anyone who would like to support me on this next stage of career.

    In terms of funding, the course itself costs _______. In addition, and according to the University of Stirling, living cost for the year amount to _______. I should note that I plan on working part-time during the year to help with living costs.

    Why do you want a second masters? There are two answers for this question. Firstly, as some of you will know, I was not the most academic person when I was younger - in fact, education was a mystery to me. However, over the last several years, I have become completely enamoured with education. As I continue to study, both auto didactically and formally, I continue to realise its great importance. In particular, I have become completely obsessed with three academic subjects: history, philosophy and psychology.

    I completed a history MA certain that this was to be my career path. I approached the idea of doctoral study, but soon came to realise that, at least for the time being, I was not completely invested in my subject area. My dream is to become an academic, that much I know - the question was in what subject. I came to realise that my true passion lay in psychology - this was a reflective conclusion based on the fact that the majority of my MA course work had an emphasis on psychology.

    Secondly, over the last several years, I have become passionate about helping people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

    This MSc affords me the opportunity to both convert my BA and to continue into doctoral study.

    I feel like I have not reached my academic potential and would, therefore,
