High Achiever Foundation Prize Scholars at Nottingham

Here is what one of our 2014 High Achiever Foundation Scholarship winners says about their scholarship:

"With the scholarship, it has been easier for my parents to pay the remaining part of my fees. The scholarship has driven me to put more effort into my studies because I feel the need to excel and give back to those who have given to me... My studies have been going on quite well and I feel that I have learnt so much in such a short period. I also like that the priority of every lecturer is the students’ satisfaction."
