    Hey guys,

    So I'm a medical science graduate (2.1) and want to study the physician associate studies msc. I can get a graduate loan and a graduate development loan (£20k in total) but since tuition fees are £18K (2X£9K) that only leaves me £2k for halls and for food. Obviously i'll be doing bank shifts in and around London hospitals at the weekends to help but I can't be working every single weekend as it's a fairly intense course. Can anyone suggest anything to get funding for living expenses?

    Hi

    I've moved this to the Money and finance forum - you've already listed all of the government funding available to you so your options are from private finance, charitable grants and university issued bursaries and scholarships.

    Plymouth has some sponsorship in place atm. You go through a sponsorship interview and if you are chosen, one of the involved Trusts will sponsor you (pay your tuition fees) for both years. You do have to work for your sponsoring trust for two years after graduation. Is worth checking if this will all still be in on place next year intake.
    Other Unis might also have some sponsoring in place, so you could check with them one by one, is also something worth do
    Good luck

    Going to move this one to Student Financial Support where it's better suited.

    I moved it out of there because the OP is already aware of the government support available. They're looking for other sources of funding/money.
