Hi, I’m Myles!
Like all my friends, I applied to university in my final year of high-school.
But tuition fees had just trebled from £3,000 to £9,000 per year, and I calculated that I would graduate with a debt of around £50,000 including living expenses.
I was offered a place at university, but in the end I decided not to go because I was too concerned about the money.
And crucially, I had no idea that there were other sources of funding available aside from student loans.
But there are.
In fact there are thousands of scholarships, grants and bursaries available to help students pay for their tuition and living expenses.
The problem is, they’re often poorly publicised and information is thin on the ground.

I have spent the past year researching scholarships and building a mobile app to solve the problem. GrantFairy is the result.
The app is easy to use and it does all the work for you: enter a handful of details (the university you’ll be attending, your course, etc.,) and you are instantly matched with dozens of scholarships which are specifically tailored to your personal circumstances.
I want the app to help students in a similar position to mine — students who are keen to go to university, but who are concerned about the cost.
Education is a valuable gift, but the financial burden of student loans and the inherent worry and stress which goes with them, is clearly something we would all rather be without.
Download the app for free now to find out how much funding you may be eligible to apply for. I think you’ll be surprised.
Now consider this: could you graduate debt-free from university?
