Hello,

I am currently studying Biology with the Open University and I have a part – time student loan with Student Finance.

I wish to go on to study medicine full time after I have finished my degree with the OU, but would like to confirm what I am entitled to.

Will I be able to apply for another loan to help me with my degree in medicine? If not, will I be able to apply for bursaries or grants, NHS or otherwise? If none of these are applicable, please could you advise what would be the best option to help me fund my medical degree? Would I be able to apply for another loan if the part – time loan has been paid off?

I look forward to your responses.

Sophia.

Hi there.

How many years is your current course, and will the Medicine course be undergraduate or graduate entry level?

Thanks

Hi Brian,

The Open University course is part-time and is 6 years.

I was going to apply to both undergraduate and graduate to increase my chances.

Thanks,

Sophia.

Hi again

For Graduate entry in year one you can apply for a maintenance loan and partial tuition fee loan. Years 2-4 a reduced rate maintenance loan.

Undergraduate a full maintenance loan only in years 1-4.

Thanks
