    A Syrian refugee who resettled in Barrow has won a university place to continue her studies in maths, less than two years after fleeing her war-torn country with her family.

    Alaa Al Zoubi and children

    Alaa Al Zoubi was a student at Damascus University when she was forced to flee the country with her small children because her husband's life was threatened.

    Now she's been offered a place to complete her studies at Leeds University, after passing her English language course and maths GCSE with Cumbria County Council's Community Learning service..

    Quote Message: When Leeds university told me they were accepting me, I can't believe it really, it was a very nice day, and when I had my exam for a higher qualification in English I cried, I hugged my son, he asked what had happened, I said 'I've passed, I've passed'." from Alaa Al Zoubi
