    Aberdeen is in the UK, and it's an NHS programme so isn't it the funding the same? (Fund first 3500 and eligible for student loan for the rest of tuition fees?)

    I hope this is the case
    Scotland tend to have no fees for university though so it might be free.

    Hey guys, here's a possible major blow if you applied to Aberdeen. They've consistently given half their offers to Scottish residents/students.

    So what this means is there's a 50% chance of you getting in of you're Scottish and 20% chance for rest of the UK. So no matter how much effort and dedication you put in your application, you're in the B list by default.

    I wish they were more transparent with they application process, could save us a lot of heartache :/

    Hey, for English students you'll apply with student finance England as normal English unis. You'll pay 4k yourself and SFE give you loan for the rest, there an NHS England bursary of about 1k and you get a reduced maintenance loan as well.

    I think there's a scheme were you can apply for 4k bursary every year with NHS Scotland were 4k = 2 years practice in Scotland. Hope that helps.

    Scottish students don't pay anything. Is it me or are there just miles of downsides to being an English student? When are the next elections again?

    Free uni would be great but the gov't has v.little cheddar. Need to stop funding the ridiculous degrees so the worth while ones don't have to pay 9k/year. That or base fees in tuition hours and resources.

    Haha my bestfriend is a 3rd year medical student at Bart's and we had this exact conversation not more that 3 hours ago.....deja vu moment.

    Im working at kings as a healthcare assistant at the moment and you won't believe how many junior doctors had to study in Europe cause places are limited in the UK cause of funding and the NHS needs doctors badly.

    Instead unis are giving off unlimited places to 'innovative' arts degrees which have no job prospects after, govt gives out the loans, meaning no money to train more doctors/dentists.

    Hi no you don't need them. There will be about 140 people taking the exam so they don't have time to check them. You get asked to bring them on the day of the interview if you get one.
