I am currently in Year 13 and have applied to medicine. I want to build my own financial stability instead of relying on my family- mostly because I am 18 and need to grow into a man. To be fair I haven't really looked in/understood how student loans work, so maybe that would sort everything out. Does anyone have any ideas ?

First step is to look into how student loans work, and calculate how much you would get. Also discuss with parents to see how much support if any they are willing and able to give you.

Which universities have you applied to?

My parents are very supportive- they will definitely help me. But the problem is I'm 18 and I have to stop relying on them and rely on myself, before I get too dependent on them and struggle in the future.
I don't think the unis I applied to will affect the student loan I receive?

Well, universities in London would increase the size of the loan, and for people from low income families university bursaries vary in size so worth checking both if applicable.

What can be a consideration for the location of the universities is access to part time work. For example I've known a couple of med students at Imperial (I know their parents) who did really well with tutoring. People who can afford to live in South Ken can afford to pay a lot for tutoring!

Yeah that was one of my main ideas, I wanted to tutor A-level students Bio Chem and Maths as I really enjoy it myself, and I believe I am great at teaching. But I don't know how much time I will have during med school and hence don't know which days I can tutor. But, yeah this has been on my mind for a long period of time now. I just have to create a proper schedule to make sure I am getting all my personal things done, as well as giving tuition
