Then you can get yourself through officer training too. Admittedly easier on the Specialist Entrants "Vicars and Tarts" course than it is on the long course, but it's still no picnic.

True. I suppose if you have the motivation and commitment to get yourseslf through med school, you can apply the same to get yourself through officer training.

Why is the Specialist Entrants Course called the 'Vicars and Tarts' Course?!! (I know the course is shorter, just curious about the name)

... there's a bit of inter-course banter about SERE people being useless, because they only join the long courses for things like FLC and PEACEKEEPER that the long course cadets have been practicing for ages.

So, with the little thread of incompetence, and the fact that it's full of a motley collection of padres, dentists, doctors, nurses, re-entrants etc, it's the Vicars and Tarts Course.

All in an affectionate way, naturally

My uncle is going through Uni to train for plastic surgery.

This country sucks when it comes to money....

I was talking with my parents and they were saying that even if you earn £50,000 + , quite a lot of it gets taxed, and in the end, it doesn't work out as good as one may think

my parents bought our house for something like 200k about 12 yrs ago, and its worth 2 and a half times worth that now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! house prices are phenominal here atm....


The best option? After my degree I may consider to MOVE TO THE US...... their tax rates are so much lower as well as house prices and the quality of it all, is so much better.......seems more modernised! I do love england, and am loving life at the moment, but just thought i'd point out!

oh, and the girls there have really hot accents.

You may be correct, but have you ever been to the US? This place doesn't compare to the US.

True, but:

1. There are no public services in America.
2. You'd have to live in America.

Qualified actuaries earn a minimum of 6 figures.

It sounds ideal if your going in for maths.

It's not that highly paid - £19,000 starting salary after 5 or 6 years training.

Most consultants average 60K which admittedly is a good salary but hardly the 'highest paid' to which this thread refers. Generally, only via private work do Drs make 6 figure salaries.
Private work is highly lucrative, an uncle is only 35 and he earns £120,000 but after 40% income tax its £70,000.

You can earn more, but 40% tax is not good.

Don't GP's pay 22% income tax as they qualify as self employed?
