I am a prospective vet student with a conditional offer for vet med starting in 2013 at Nottingham Uni.
However the price tag seems to be a bit of an issue.
Maintenance Loan: £3,823
Tuition Fee Loan: £9000
Higher Education Maintenance Grant: £3,354
Total money available: £16, 177
Cost per Year:
Course Fee's: £9000
Total Cost: £14, 079
This would leave me with £2098 over 38 weeks so £55.21 per week. However, I still need books, surgical equipment, food etc.
I was just wondering how current vet students cope with this financial issue, as the workload is so high they cannot work.
Are there any bursaries that I could get that are not from the university?
Is it possible to get sponsorships?
Thanks for your help in advance
Or does it play no part?
