I have a degenerative neurological disease of unknown origin that is devastating my life.
This disease has stopped me working in my beloved career as a clinical nurse specialist in colorectal care.
I have a burning desire to undertake an MSc is psychology and neuroscience of mental health. This course would be 100% online and this posses me a problem. I am not able to gain government funding or a bursary or grant for this qualification. I do not have the £15600 required to take the course even if I manage to try and fund each module this course would be impossible for me to fund as I am on benefits (ESA and PIP).
It is my honest belief that if you don't use it you lose it as far as brain functioning. I have noticed a significant cognitive decline since this disease started. I feel that undertaking the coursework involved in an MSc would be highly beneficial to my long term functioning.
I do understand I can get assistance as a disabled student and obviously, I am in the process of attempting to secure this funding.
My concern is the tutition fees which are out of my ability to gain. I have an overall aim to work on a Phd on motor neurone disease which I have a special interest in and I believe I could be enabled to make ground breaking research if I was given the opportunity to do the MSc to enable my entry into the Phd course.
Please could you consider assisting me with some of the crowd funding.
I do hope you understand my deep desire not only to study the MSc but also to work at preventing any brain deterioration that may be connected to my condition.
