A short exerpt from Saeed’s journey:

At the time of writing, we are in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and a lot of students might feel that it’s not the right time to study. But there is no time like the present! The universities have coped so well to set up alternatives and to maintain a safe yet student-friendly environment. Whilst certain things have been impacted, the quality on offer hasn’t, and neither will the end result be with you getting your degree. Don’t forget also that there is so much support available too that will help you when you need it. Whether it’s at the university itself or it’s through Disabled Students Allowance (DSA), there’s support every step of the way and it is absolutely phenomenal. There’s support for proofreading, transcribing, Study Skills, Mentoring as well as software that’s available for students with visual/audio impairments and learning conditions. I would rate it a thousand out of a thousand and if it wasn’t for the support available from the university, the DSA and from Scholars Mentoring Company, I might not have been able to get to where I am now!
