    As far as I'm aware you have to pay your fees every year. You can't pay them back after you graduate as there are no tuition fee loans available for graduates. English universities charge £9000 per year, Glasgow £~26000, and Edinburgh more than £35000 per year. You can get a maintainence loan as a graduate vet student but it won't cover your fees and you still need to pay for accommodation etc.

    I'm applying as a graduate for 2018 entry and I'm saving every penny I've got, and even though I work whenever I can (I'm self employed) I still wouldn't be able to cover all the fees myself without my family's help.

    It's £9000 a year at most the universities, Edinburgh is in the £20,000 a year band. You can't do the degree and pay it back at the end, you have to pay each year, in 3 instalments. £3000 at a time (ish). You won't get a tuition fee loan, you have to fund the full 4/5 years yourself (or with help from family). You need to have come up with a solution for how to pay for the degree before interview (I was asked at each of my interviews how I was planning on paying the £9000 a year)
    Most graduates either have family who are willing to bail them out, or they spend years saving before they go in order to pay for it.
