    Hi, I'm a second year Chemical Engineering major in a university in the U.S. I'm looking towards applying to postgraduate medical studies. I was wondering if any U.S. students, who are studying medicine in the UK, what it is like, what the process was to get into these schools, and how the funding is.

    There are 2 possible routes. Apply in the year you will graduate, by October 15th through UCAS to either the 5 years courses alongside UK graduates and school leavers or the 4 year courses alongside just graduates. The 5 year course entry involves your degree plus the UKCAT or BMAT aptitude tests. The 4 year courses require your degree and the UKCAT or BMAT or some the GAMSAT.

    If you are an overseas candidate then funding is up to you. If you are a UK or an EU candidate studying in the uSA then UK/EU funding MAY be available.

    You can bring your US Student loans across as well but not sure if that will cover the whole cost

    Interesting article. It matches exactly the experiences of several Americans and Canadians in my son's class. They are just graduating this year and are already very worried about "getting in" back home. They were happy with the ease of getting into med school here and very happy with their course. Just now they are encountering the issues of return that did not exist when they came here first.
