    Hi all,
    I am seriously interested in studying medicine. However this is looking like less and less of an option....which is a bit soul destroying.
    I'm nearly 27 and have already completed 2 years of a degree which means I gained a Diploma of Higher Education in 2014. Entry requirements don't seem to be an issue. My main problem is finance as I don't know what I'll be entitled to and what I need to find myself.
    I'm by no way wealthy and have my own place and financial responsibilities. Plus I don't have the option of using the bank of mum and dad. I'm stuck and devastated that I may lose any chance of med school.

    Are you looking to apply for GEM or undergrad medicine?

    GEM courses receive tuition and maintenance loans even if you have already completed a degree, but require an approx £3500 up front payment in the first year.

    Undergrad courses do not have this luxury but if you have not yet completed a degree fully you may still be entitled to some loans from student finance, although I am not sure on this.

    Best bet is to ring SF, explain your position and see what they can do for you with regards to loans.

    No I won't be applying for GEM as I don't have a previous degree so I wouldn't be eligible.
