“University of Westminster – East View” by David Buxton


My class-mates don’t know I’m an asylum seeker. I think I’m the only one. I haven’t told them because I think they might laugh or be childish. They do know that I have a problem with fees or loans or something and that’s why I might not be going to uni in September. It feels sad because they are all going.


I have 4 offers from universities to study. I am studying an Access course and it’s getting harder and harder. I have to take it very seriously. Sometimes I think it’s even harder than university!


If I had won my case, then my social worker said they might have helped with uni fees. I even got a scholarship for part of it, but I still need £7000 more. How can an asylum seeker find that money!!?? Now my chances of going to uni are getting less and less. The worst thing is I will also lose my house and my support. I don’t know what I will do. Actually, I just try not to think about it, but sometimes my brain forces me to think about it and that makes me feel really sad.
