    Yup, the fees paid by internationals are enormous! Tuition fees will be paid by my parents. I'm really grateful in that I have parents who are supportive and willing to fund me, considering that my family's not too loaded in the first place. It will indeed be a financial strain should I pursue medicine in the UK as opposed to my country. (Local uni's my first choice as such )

    I haven't taken a look at grants/loans/stuff like that so I'm not too sure. There's no scholarship for medicine in my country I was thinking about working part-time if I get into UK med but my mum told me to concentrate on studying :dontknow:.
    My situation's a bit complex so i'm not sure if i'll be applying as a home student or an international student...my parents are willing to pay but i dunno if i can get financial help from somewhere, my exams finished about a month ago, and i'm starting a part-time job from next monday to save up for the fees...

    The way i think at the moment is that the no.1 priority is getting into medicine, and finance is no.2 ... but my parents keep moaning about it and it depresses me sometimes, makes me feel like even if i get superb results and everything and get a place in a really good uni, that i wont be able to go because my parents can't afford it, it's just a lingering thought in the back of my head i try to kill

    My sentiments exactly, getting into medicine first and fretting about money later. If you're worried about the money, perhaps you could look at the uni websites to see if they provide financial aid and scholarships. Alternatively, how about getting study loans? In the meantime, be nice to your parents

    Yeah once i get accepted into a uni, i'll speak to their financial department and see what support and stuff are available, i'm aware of a few of the scholarships available for unis i want to apply to.....and yea, gotta be extra nice to my parents for the next year

    I'm gonna have the biggest sigh of relief ever once i've been accepted by a uni, and have the money to stay there at the campus.

    Yup, I'm applying for med in Singapore as well and it's my first choice since its the cheapest option. However applications open after the release of A level results so there's still a long time. (and requirements are more competitive )
