I am a student from Hong Kong, holding British citizens passport but have lived in UK boarding house for three years. Since I do not meet the home fee status, I have to pay international fee. I am thinking of doing medicine but it is quite expensive and it takes six years. I think my A levels result will not be a problem to getting into medicine as my teachers predicted me to get 2A* and 2As . So do you think I should do medicine or not?

Do you have any interest in being a doctor?

Yes but the problem is the fee for an international student is too expensive. I think my dad can not afford that

Ah don’t worry! That’s why you can get student loans!! Your dad doesn’t need to pay at all. Once you start working yearly a bit of money will be taken from what you earn so it won’t negatively impact you at all!! Also led school is 5 years
Most med schools have a mandatory iBSc so it totals at 6 years :/

The competition is very tough for medicine so make sure it’s something you definitely want to do since you’ll be committing a lot of energy into entry itself, with no guarantee of getting in, even with solid grades.

Yeh that’s why I removed my previous post. Make certain that you’re an international student plus they won’t make you pay £45000 right away, it’ll be made as debt for when you actually start working as a doctor.

No, international students are expected to pay their fees as they go along
