In England, Student Finance England finances the first 4 years and year 5 is covered by NHS bursary. Info is here https://www.healthcareers.nhs.uk/car...udents-england with links for Wales/Scotland/NI and info on slight variances. You still have to pay for everything else yourself - you can use maintenance loans/grants may help with funding these.

No. People from all backgrounds can study medicine. Read the link I posted. It tells you what financial help you can get.

As I've already told you:
The first 4 years are financed by Student Finance England, ie you get a student loan for it.
You also get a maintenance loan to help cover the other costs.

You only start repaying these loans when you start earning over a certain amount. Most people don't pay it all back as they don't earn enough/it takes that long to pay back.
