    Is there any funding for medicine as a second degree?

    I have a first class BSc in physics and I'm applying to GEM this year, although my UKCAT isn't the best as one section has dragged down my average. I have AABB at A level, and I think entry requirements for undergrad are at least AAA? I could sit another A level if that is acceptable, but I would like to know if there is any funding for medicine as a second degree, as I don't have £45,000 to pay upfront over the 5 years.

    Thanks for any help

    You will get funding for all but around £3465 on a GEM course. Applying to the 5 year courses will mean that your first four years tuition fees would be unfunded and you would need £36K. Only a few 5 year courses require you to have AAA, most have separate requirements for grads. But yeah, you will need to pay.

    Summary of options here : https://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/...es/medics2017/

    And : http://www.rmbf.org/medical-students...second-degree/

    Essentially, unless you have some 'private' money to plug the gaps, its probably a non-starter.
