    I came from iraq in October 2014 with my dad ( started his PhD studying on mathematics and biostatistics) . and I came with him and I started doing my GCSE and I finished them and carried on to A level. right now I year 13 student and I applied for universities to study medicine. The problem is my dad is going back in 2019 and I want to stay here and continue studying. however, I can not afford the university cost and living by myself (going back iraq mean no future to me because I have to start school again because of the differences in both systems) I came with dependent visa on my dad tire4 visa. question is can I get student loans? I have been in England all that time and if not can I get scholarship or international student loans?

    I think you need to have full citizenship for university loans, many international students find themselves doing careers to support their studies but tbh they graduate without a penny owed, perhaps you could get scholarships. What are your grades looking like?

    Ok what and what are your subjects?
    Also bear in mind BMAT/UKCAT will probably be a factor for medical scholarships
