Hi Hila, will this be Graduate Entry Medicine? Are you only moving to Scotland for the purpose of studying? Can you confirm you have EU Settled Status?
Thanks, Isaac

Hello Mr Isaac, Thanks for your reply.
1- it is not a graduate entry, full 6 years course where graduate people can skip 3rd year.
2- I will be only moving to scotland for study medicine
3- yes i have settlement status
I have heard that I will not be able to have tuition fees support, only maintainence loan.
What shall i do? How i can cover my tuition fees? it is around 9500 and now my parents are saying to forget about study medicine. I have done my first degree because i have been told to do that because i could’t apply directly to medicine. And the masters i chose to do so i can study during this pandemic meanwhile i apply for medicine for next year.
Please if you have any idea let me know
Thanks 😔

Previous study does not affect eligibility for Graduate Entry Medicine but it does for undergraduate medicine.

This means you will only be eligible for a Maintenance Loan for an undergraduate medicine course, you will have to self fund the tuition fee. This is based on you having settled status, you will be classed as a home student.
Thanks, Isaac

For the Tuition Fee, you will be classed as a UK home student so should pay the £9250 fees but you will need to discuss that with the university and you have have to show them you have settled status.
