By some miracle, I have an unconditional offer of acceptance to the University of Dundee, which is near the central-east coast of Scotland! The problem is, with the cost of tuition, wheelchair-accessible living [on or off campus], caregiving, disability accommodation, transportation, and daily necessities, accepting the offer of a Part-Time Writing Practice and Study MLitt will only happen in my unconscious.
Please help make this dream come true!
A. Tuition: for both years = GBP16450 ($21,412.13)
B. Room and board and incidentals (on campus): GBP8000 ($11,200)/year ($11,200)
C. Cost of caregivers 7 hours a day at ~GBP15/hr: ~GBP750/wk. (NHS calculator for Glasgow estimates £37,000 ($51,595)/ year. This assumes hiring is possible with gaps in time)
D. Cost of accommodations (notetakers, scribes, testing, etc.): ~GBP25/hr, ~GBP150/wk, estimated at GBP6750 ($9414)/yr
E. Travel to Dundee (to and from):
a. August 2018 with accompanying person $1600 RT each for flight to Edinburgh via NYC = $3200
b. One visit home during school year (optional): $3200
Total for 1 year (not including medical expenses): $109,435.13
Revenue in UK:
A. SSI 0
B. DSHS/Medicaid 0
C. GET funds 0
D. GoFundMe ?
E. Scholarships ?
(Probably 0, though: UK/EU scholarships (I have EU citizenship) or those with disabilities are almost all limited to those EU citizens who have had an EU address for the past three years, and the vast majority of US scholarships are only for US schools.)
F. Other $5000?
