    Does anyone know if student finance take into account siblings at uni? Me and my brother are both starting in September on the minimum loan so parents are expected to contribute a fair bit cause of the two of us. And in two years time my there will be three of us all at uni so it'll only get worse. I've heard rumours that they do but I'm not sure, does anyone here know?
    I think on the application it did ask whether I had any siblings in Higher Education but notmsure if you put yes how much it would help.

    Ah right thank you It probably won't help me but I'll look into it more, I just haven't seen anything on the website and wondered.

    I must say, I like your sig

    Yeh, I'm not sure about the specifics because mines is through SAAS (the scottish equivalent) but the way it works with me, is that the "parental contribution" is divided by how ever many children are at university. Your total loan amount is the max loan subtract the parental contribution. So for example, if depending your family's income the parental contribution was £2000, but there are two children at university, the effective parental contribution would be £1000 for each child. So you would be able to borrow the max loan subtract £1000, rather than the max loan subtract £2000.....if that makes sense

    Hi everyone

    Not sure if anyone remembers me, but i'm a reapplicant. I sort of fell off the radar a few months ago and stopped posting here, but i followed this thread to about the end of 2011

    Just had a look through the past few pages and it's really good to see some of the people i remember now have offers and will be medical students in September. Congrats to you guys :cool:

    Unfortunately i'm not going to be one of them though, i've got all medicine rejections now, but hey at least i have 2 Biomed offers (UEA offered me biomed after rejecting me for medicine).

    So the question now is, which to accept... Newcastle or UEA for biomed? Which one would you guys go for?

    I'm still really keen to medicine at some point though. Does anyone know much about postgraduate finance for a medicine degree?

    -I remember you
    -I don't have any Medicine offers either
    -Both of the unis are great, have you looked at course content? (They'll be similar but maybe some topics seem...nicer? )
    -Newcastle=Party hard! not got a clue on UEA though :/
    -postgrad- Try your damn hardest to get your 1st degree and just apply to GEM! The financing is set to change soon so by the time we finish our degrees it will be changed :/

    Hey, sorry, i'm no-where near a re-applicant, a current year 12 actually but just wanted to point out that Newcastle might let you transfer at the end of your first year of Biomed to medicine...? (Thats what I thought i read anyway, don't quote me on it, i may have just made that up!)

    I remember you too :nutcase:

    It sucks to hear that Where do you see yourself going from here?

    Yeah, i've had a fair look at both courses, i think i prefer Newcastles. And haha no, i'm not really a partyer - don't drink for starters

    Really? What's changing with the finance? From what i've sort of seen so far (and i have to be honest - i've not done that much research into it yet) you have to fund your second degree yourself. Which would mean working a hell of a lot during my first course, no way do me or my parents have enough for even one year of fees

    Yup, that's one of the biggest reasons for choosing Newcastle over East Anglia. The possibility that i could transfer to my preferred course after a year

    Thanks for bringing it up, i'm sure there are people who may not be aware of that internal transfer. Definitely something for any Year 12's poking around here to consider if/when applying for medicine - Newcastle for biomed is a pretty good 5th choice

    Be sure that you could handle not gettin into medicine in the first year and the fact the course isn't actually accredited with the biomedical... People council thing




    And after that, PARTY HARD IN GEORDIE LAND

    Do you think the course not being accredited could hurt my chances if i were to apply for graduate-entry medicine?
