COMMENTS:

Keith: “Without JETS, I may not have been able to study for my Accounting and Finance degree - the charity made a significant contribution to my first year tuition fees. I may need the support of the charity, and its contacts, in order to obtain suitable internships and work placements as my studies progress.”
