  1. Thank you for all the posts I have been receiving. For me I am already admitted in the University of Chester, but need support towards my fees in form of scholarship. I am a lady aged above 50 and doing a MSc. in Management with the objective of switching to managerial positions or consultancy. How can I be supported? All scholarships are tagged to specific universities

    I come from Uganda and I had to raise funds to start this course from my littles savings from my previous salary because I have struggled to get scholarships for years and I could not get yet years are passing by. Advise please if I can get a sponsor and I can in return show my gratuity to carry out free service.
