    Just an update, husband spoke with St Georges and they said the email was a mistake and to just wait for the GAMSAT results to come out middle of this month.

    Thank goodness!!

    (Not that we are confident about the results, just that he would prefer to be turned down for that rather than missing a deadline!)

    Good luck peeps!! x

    As a graduate entry student, is there any possibility of getting student finance? I just saw on the SFE website that they only provide loans for your first degree. I am worried I won't be able to afford this even if I was lucky enough to get an interview, let alone an offer!
    Hi There,

    This link to the NHS careers website says that if you are a graduate and studying a 5 year medicine degree, you won't be able to get Student Finance tuition fee loans or maintenance grants as you did for your undergraduate course.

    However, apparently you can apply for a maintenance loan from Student Finance which is income based. Why don't you give Student Finance a call and ask about your possibilities? We've done it lots of times, and they are always very helpful!

    Your 5th year of study and onward will be paid for by the NHS Student Bursary scheme, which is the same as for undergraduates as far as we are aware.

    If you have other general questions about graduate entry Medicine, why not sign up to this free event in London?

    We hope this helps you with your finance query. Good Luck!

    Update on the St George's rejections for submitting application after the closing date - they have emailed to say this was an error and should be ignored. Big relief!

    They are asking people not to phone in while they deal with the issue.

    UCAS are also aware.

    This thread is primarily aimed at the fast track graduate course which has totally different funding arrangements. Also please don't lie about the event! It is not about uk graduate entry medicine, it is about paying to study medicine abroad! If we wanted to do that we would post in a relevant area, not here!

    Why is this advertised as being for "post graduate medicine", when what it actually means is "graduate entry medicine"?

    Hey, I got the same thing via track for Birmingham. I gave them a call and they were pretty shocked too. They said they'll speak with the med faculty and get back to me tomorrow! I think you should give St. George's a call. Hopefully this works out for all of us.

    Hey did you call up Birmingham today? I just got an unsuccessful on Track also and thought I was just unsuccessful. Could it be a mistake?

    I did. They said they'll send me a feedback but they haven't yet. Could still be a mistake. :'(
    I suggest you ring them up. And then let me know how it goes, please?

    Hi neuronerd,

    Oops - sorry! We didn't realise this was a thread primarily for fast track graduate course applicants. For fast track stuff, you're right. The funding arrangements are totally different!

    Woah, that's crazy! I'm so sorry! I had no idea Bristol had started rejecting people already. Was this for A100 or A101? What qualifications do you have if you don't mind me asking?

    Four other people on the Birmingham uni thread have said they had the same problem. And it turned out to be mistake.
    I don't know anything anymore.

    That is pretty insane, especially with a (presumably) pretty medically relevant Masters. I assume your Degree classification and A-levels were decent too? When did you get the notification? What are your other choices? Don't worry I'm sure everything will work out in the end - you only need one interview after all!
