Support Ziad so he can do a law conversion (GDL) course at City University

Update posted by Sophie Roell On Sep 27, 2016

Unfortunately, Ziad did not meet requirements to start at City this September. While he got the 7.5 he needed overall in his IELTS (English test for foreign students), he did not meet the criterion on the writing part of the test, which was 6.5: he only got 6. However, as a result of everyone's generous donations we paid the 500 GBP deposit and this means he is automatically enrolled for next year.

This gives him 12 months to get his writing better. The IELTS costs 150 GBP a go, and he's done it twice already -- studying seems to be an expensive business and you can see why many refugees can't afford it. Hang in there Ziad!

Thank you so much for your generosity...we have already raised enough to pretty much pay the 500 GBP deposit that Ziad needs to put down to start a Graduate Diploma in Law at City University. Will keep you posted as he sends in his acceptance letter and goes through the process of (re) starting his studies. It is now 18 months since he escaped from Syria, and just under a year since he arrived in the UK.

Fantastic news! Ziad has been accepted into all 3 law conversion (GDL) courses he has applied to (Oxford Brookes, City and Westminster). If anyone else wants to make a small donation so he doesn't have to take out quite as a big a student loan, that would be amazing. (NB All money raised via this site will be spent on training/education NOT living expenses etc.).
