    Hello,
    I did a previous degree in BSc biomedical Sciences in the UK, for which I took out a student loan. I later went on to study medicine undergraduate abroad in Malta (an EU country), although I am a British citizen. I am wondering if I am eligible for any funding or loans from Student finance e.g. a postgraduate loan?

    I know we are not eligible for the usual NHS bursaries because we study abroad, however, would a course in medicine qualify as a postgraduate course and allow me to apply for a loan instead? I suspect the answer may be a firm no, so in that case are there any sources of funding you can suggest because it is getting very difficult to support myself financially whilst living abroad and studying.

    Thanks for your time and all suggestions/ideas are welcome.

    Hi Globalmedic,

    I'm afraid that we would not provide you with any funding, you can only apply for funding if you are studying in the UK.

    Thanks
