Funding medicine as a second degreeWatch
I’m going to be applying for medicine this year as a graduate, but I’m deliberating whether to apply for the normal 5 year undergraduate or 4 war accelerated graduate program.
The 4 year is more competitive to get into and there’s less unis to choose from, but as far as I can work out with the 4 year course you pay £3,450 for year 1 towards tuition and the rest is payed by a loan from student finance, then the next 3 years tuition is payed for by the Loan and NHS. But do you get a mainlanence loan for these 4 years for living costs?
And with the 5 year you get a tuition and maintanece loan for years 3,4 and 5, but is there a way of funding year 1 and 2 for tuition and maintanence?
So really I was wondering if anyone knows how graduates go about funding with medicine with tuition and living costs? Is a part time job needed? As I can’t imagine you’d have enough time to do this with the course load
