Hello, my name is Sohaib Khan and I am a First Class Economics and Finance graduate from Keele University and an aspiring worker in the financial industries. Earlier this year, I made a successful application to The London School of Economics for Msc Accounting and Finance. This course further explores the financial and investment studies as well as regulation in the accounting world to give me more practical knowledge of the industry. I applied for various scholarships and grants from both the government as well as LSE however i was unsuccessful for any of those. The funding for masters student is extremely limited. I have managed to save about £20,000 from work and through the help of family and friends however I am still £20,000 of the estimated target. Here is a break-down of costs (click the figures to see where they come from):
Tuition fees - £23,976
Living expenses - £14,440
PayPal fees (3.5%, applied to successful projects) - £770
I am a 23 year old recent graduate from Stoke-on-Trent. I have a passion for reading especially fiction work as well as keeping up to date with all the latest news in the grand economy of the world as I am extremely interested how little actions can have price effects and demand/supply effects all over the world. I have a passion for travelling and experiencing different cultures and I plan to travel after finishing my studies.
I come from a humble background attending a state-funded school and college. I have always had a passion for learning and education and the financial sides of things have always interested me from a very young age. I have always dreamed of attending the prestigious London School of Economics as it is in the forefront of financial research in the world.
