    Hi,

    I am currently in the final year of a BSc Psychology degree and am thinking about applying for a graduate entry medicine course next year I.e. for September2019 entry (if I can figure out a way of making it financially viable!).

    So my question is this - if I were to do a masters in the year between finishing my psychology degree and starting medicine, would that affect the funding I could apply for for the medicine course?

    I’m thinking that a masters would look good on my cv, but don’t want to do it if it’s going to be detrimental to getting funding for graduate entry medicine!

    Many thanks

    Beth

    Hi Beth,

    Doing the Masters in between your degree and the graduate entry medicine won't affect your funding when it comes to doing the graduate entry medicine course. For the Masters course, you can apply for the Postgraduate Loan (PGL).

    The funding for graduate entry medicine is a bit different to other courses. If you have a look here (this is the University of Nottingham website so ignore the section regarding University of Nottingham bursaries) it gives you a simple breakdown of how the finance works.

    I hope this information helps.

    Kind regards,
    John.
