“Getting the GREAT scholarship was a dream come true moment for someone like me, coming from a middle class family in India, where studying abroad is considered as a financial burden. This scholarship helped me in boosting my confidence that one can achieve anything if desired to. I am sure it is going to influence me a lot after I go back to my country. I am really glad to study in the University of Northampton which gives a perfect study environment and total support in every activity we pursue.”
