Needing assistance in securing bursary or loan for my PhD

by Majidah

Q. I am in dire need of securing bursary or even a loan for my PhD program. I have been offered an admission for a 3-year PhD program in Biological Science at the University of Leeds UK.

I am due to start in January. I have already applied for the Leeds International Research scholarship but could not secure it. The tuition fees is £16500 per year and I will not be able to fund myself.

I have searched several websites for alternative source of funding but I cannot see a highly relevant one that I can apply to. I am an African.

This PhD admission is very important to me as I have been looking for the opportunity for up to years. I would not want to lose it.

I will appreciate any help on how I can secure a scholarship, bursary or even loan which I can pay back as soon as I secure work after my program.
