The armed forces and medicine watch

    • Thread Starter

    A little about myself; I'm a future medical student working on a finance plan for the 5 year degree. I'm currently studying comp sci. I'll be leaving university with £14,000 saved from my scholarship. My plan to earn the extra £23,000 so far is to work for 3 years postgraduation as a software engineer to save up tuition fees.

    I'll be able to fund the tuition fees but I'm a bit bazzled about living costs. People here have said you might be able to get another maintenance loan but there's no guarantee. However, I read on the GMC website that the British Army offers a £10,000 scholarship per year if you enlist for 6-8 years as an army medic. They also pay you more in the foundation years but I'd assume you'd do them at a military hospital.

    Does anyone here have any experiences of being an army medic? Do you work in military hospitals or do you work on the front line/warzones? Are army medics in any real danger?
Cats or dogs?
