    Hi
    I am an european student with an honour bachelor degree in biology. I would like to apply for veterinary medicine in september 2018 in Bristol University. The fees per year are about £9,250. Could you please tell me exactly the financial support that I could have knowing that :
    - I already have a bachelor degree in biology
    - I am in a single-parent family
    - I am self-funded and my family can't financially help me
    Thank you very much for reading me.

    My understanding is there is very little/ no government funding available to you.

    The reason being you already have a degree, which removes your eligibility.

    This is the same situation for UK students. Not uncommon for people to take out large bank loans plus work for several years in order to finance the course.

    There are only 8 courses who do veterinary medicine in the UK and two of those run graduate entry, which means a four year course rather than five. Yours is five.

    Bristol offers some small bursaries, but they won make a significant impact imo, but better than nothing. Be aware they may not be available due to it being a second degree.

    This details what funding is available or rather not available.

    Fees are not funded as stated above due to you having a degree already.

    Maintenance may be possible, except you will need to investigate further because it says UK applicants and doesnt define whether that extends to EU applicants and importantly any residence requirements. Normally on first degree and EU citizen would need to be resident in the UK for 5 years prior to the start of the course . You dont provide residence details.

    You could investigate whether working migrant scheme applies, whereby if you have a job 24 hours a week and £7,500 pa min. That may be incompatible with your course.
