Hello,

I was wondering if any of you guys would know about a way to raise funds in order to pursue studies.

I have been accepted for a master at the Universidad de Malaga in Spain (with Visa) however I do not have enough money to pursue the studies and was wondering if there was a way to raise funds or to find a corporate sponsorship for a Telecommunication Master.

Thanks in advance...

Mohamed

Combine with a second course Dec 25, 2008

supported by the MAEC-AECID program?

http://www.becasmae.es/ (Click on Becas MAEC-AECID).

Just a suggestion. The study visa is not generally compatible with work, unless the job is campus or study-related.

Actually I tried the MAEC-AECID they say it's too late for 2009. What I am really worried about is the "proof of means" required in order to get the Student's Card (Tarjeta de estudiante).

You can't really work unless you have a permit and it's not that easy to do based on what I understood from the different websites and forums I visited.

Thanks for your answers.

Education loan Dec 26, 2008

I remember you seeked the scholarship.
Another method is obtaining education loan. If you afford, you are credited to furthur your study. If not, you had better postpone your study until you are ready.
