    No, you aren't making any employment contract with the NHS when you accept tuition fees from them. You can work where ever you like, as long as your qualification is transferable to the country you want to work in. You'll do your placements in NHS settings anyway, so it doesn't matter.

    I actually found it in a book rather than online. It was a book published to show an outline of all the health courses out there, and there was a section on funding.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
