    Hello
    I live in England and am studying my undergrad degree in England. I want to apply to study post graduate medicine in Scotland. Am I still entitled to the same help as I would be in the UK (i.e help with tuition fee - minus the first £3645 and maintenance loans, as well as NHS bursaries)? Or would I have to fund all my tuition fee myself if I study the ScotGEM course?
    Kind regards

    Hi sherlockholmes96,

    Postgraduate funding attracts different support than the undergraduate support you are currently receiving.

    These courses can be funded by the Postgraduate Loan (PGL), if you are in receipt of a healthcare bursary you won't be eligible to receive a PGL as well.


    You will find more information and how to apply here

    For Postgrad medicine in first year (£9250-£3645=£5605) £5605 can be funded by student finance if I study in the UK and I can get a maintenance loan. Is this the same for studying in scotland? I have ask the Uni directly and they told me to ask SFE.

    Hi sherlockholmes96;

    Are you planning to do a Graduate Entry Medicine course or
    is it a Masters Course ?

    You would apply to the Award Authority, where you would normally live.

    Thanks Rona
