    Sorry it is a bit long. I have Asperger's syndrome. My mother is a doctor (Registrar Paediatrician) at a hospital in East London.

    Going to university costs £9250 per year. However, I once read on the NHS website that the last two years of a medical degree are free. Is this true? Or will I have to pay extortionate amounts of money?

    If you do a five year course your fifth year is free.

    If you do a six year course (where you spend a year doing a bsc) your fifth and sixth years are free.

      If it's a six-year course, yes. The rule is that the NHS pays your tuition after fourth year, so if it's a five year course, then the NHS pays one year's tuition.

      You wouldn't be paying any tuition upfront anyway (assuming you're a home applicant) so there's no need to worry about not being able to afford the extortionate fees.
