    Hi everyone, I've seen questions like this before on here, but obviously they become outdated very quickly.

    I was wondering if anyone had a relatively simple answer to this question. I've looked at a number of websites and most data is from around 2014/15.

    I want to undertake medicine (BSc) as a second degree, it's something I've always wanted to do, but lets just say I had a bad experience with my careers counsellor at college so did a different degree.

    The one I've seen is a 6 year degree, which has a foundation year at UEA. I feel this would be good because I didn't get quite the AAA grades necessary for the 5 year course, but I have absolutely no idea about funding whatsoever.

    Anyone got any answers/tips/links to funding at all?

    I know this is what I want to do, and I'm so worried I've stuffed my chances up now.

    If you already have a degree then you really need to be looking at graduate-entry medicine (some universities only accept students who did science degrees, but many accept all subjects). I believe you have to make a financial contribution to your first year (a few thousand pounds), but after that you can get tuition fee and maintenance loans. There is much more information in the Medicine forum.
