e-petition tuition fee loans for graduate on 5 year medicine courses SIGN and SHARE!Watch
I would be grateful if you could sign my e-petition http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/68617
I do not receive a tuition fee loan to support me through my 5 year medicine degree as I'm a graduate but my colleagues on the 4 year GEM courses do. I have created an e-petition to raise awareness about how this is preventing widening participation to medicine for people from diverse and non-traditional backgrounds, particularly those from low income families.
I don't expect this will change anything for me, but I am doing this in the hope that future medical students will not be in a position where they will have to turn down a place at medical school because of financial reasons.
As many universities are now slashing their 4 year graduate medicine programmes, there are fears that applications would be possible only for the wealthiest graduate students. https://communities.bma.org.uk/commu...p/293/785.aspx
