    Same situation as you. Short answer, no there is barely anything. You can qualify for a maintenance loan but not the tuition fee loan also QUB doesn't give any grants to those doing medicine or dentistry (I am a graduate doing dentistry this sept so I was asking around). So you will have to self fund your tuition fees either by working or getting your parents/friends/family to help. I also checked scholarships provided by external people related to QUB and I think there is one for medicine but as it wasn't related to my course I didn't really look into it deeply. On a side-note if you have no funding at all from anywhere and you are desperate to do medicine join the armed forces/RAF/ Navy as they will fund your course (provided you are accepted or studying on the course already) the catch you have to do mandatory service I think for 3-5 years?
