Francois' BA Psychology Degree

Francois' BA Psychology Degree

Personal message

Good day,

My name is Francois Harmse. I am 41 years old and I live in Boston, Bellville, Cape Town. I have been excepted by UWC to start my three year BA Psychology degree, fulltime.

It has taken me a year to downscale and do a bridging course to be excepted. I even secured myself a job, informing my employer what my plans were. After being excepted and paying my admission fees, the potential employer called me in and withdrew the job. I had to choose between my work or my studies.

It has taken me twenty years to decide what I want to do with my life and what my dream is. I have tried to find another job to support my studies and living costs. I am still applying every day for positions, but so far I have not been successful.

My first year of studies is R 30 000 and my monthly expenses to have a place to live, food and petrol to get to class are R7 000 per month. I do have a weekend job, but it hardly covers my living expenses. So the funds will be used to pay for my studies and for my living expenses. I am also prepared to work for the money and not just get the money.

I will also be applying for a bursary to assist me for next year. I was just too late last year to apply for this year. This is really something that I want and I do not want to give up on it easily. Every cent raised will be appreciated and put to good use for a future that will enable me to help others. IF I can make a difference in one person's life a day, then your funds would not have gone for nothing.

*Funds raised will go directly to the university and then to Francois for living expenses*
