    BSc(Hons) Building Surveying (Year 3)

    Harris Bursary Fund

“As a single father the last three years at university have been a financial challenge.  The travelling expenses from Southport to Preston have been a nightmare with the recent rise in petrol prices.  However I have received support from the various teams at UCLan every step of the way." 

“From the Harris Bursary Fund I was awarded a laptop, book vouchers and food vouchers. These awards were an enormous help towards easing my financial struggle, and for that I am very grateful."

“After I finish my degree I will be going on to study a PGCE in teaching. Without the financial help I have received this would have never been possible."

Walter's Advice

“My advice to current students would be to carry on no matter how bad your situation seems. The rewards of finishing your degree are fantastic.”

Walter’s thank you

“I would like to give the biggest thank you ever to the ‘sleeping giants’ that donate to the Harris Bursary Fund.”
