    Hi all,
    I'm hoping someone can help. I currently had a non medical degree, and am considering going back to university to study medicine. I know, I'm mad. I'm just wondering what my best route into this is? I've been really confused by all the different information I've seen. Also is there any funding available to me? I have used the four years student finance I am allowed, for my undergraduate degree. If anyone can help, it would be most appreciated.

    You need to look into graduate entry medicine. It is designed specifically for people like you, and is almost all funded by SFE/NHS. Some courses have a requirement for a science-based degree, some do not.

    It is very competitive. Much more so than undergraduate-entry. Be warned!

    I know some who did music as their first degree and is now a couple of years into the a100! They do have to self fund, but they did save up. They also had to do an A-level in chemistry in night school.
