    Hi, I'm an international student and I'm hoping to get into a medicine school in UK. I'm in sixth form now. I also have a twin. International student fees are just TOO MUCH! and with us being 2 it's just twice as bad.
    We've been told that we can get a scholarship, but honestly I think this is impractical, there will always be students smarter than us. I've also been told to look into unis that are recently opened and not the well-known ones, but I want to make it to a school that is fairly prestigious.

    I could also do a foundation year. So, I want to ask a few questions.
    1- Do any unis offer a scholarship in foundation year?
    2-If I go for foundation year and manage to pay full tuition fees, will I still be given the chance to get a scholarship in the first year of my course?
    3-What are some unis with cheaper tuition fees for medicine?
    4-Is having a chance in an international scholarship 0% if my grades are not above the requirements?

    Thank you so much in advance, I'm a little lost and I need some help so it would be great if you reply to this.
