    You'll need to complete your foundation course first. Then you can apply for the normal degree (3 years) or go through OU (4 years) but you still work alongside it.

    So I'd say minimum of 4 years from starting your foundation course.

    Sadly you won't. This year (September 2016 and March 2017) will be the last nhs funded intake. You'll still be able to afford to do it (it's possible you will end up with more money during training with loans) but sadly it will be an extra tax on your income once you qualify (that's how I see student loan payments).

    Good luck with everything!
