Graduate Entry Medicine Bursary Scheme Funding

Hi I found this info on graduate entry medicine;
"Year 1 Tuition Fee
Your tuition fee will usually be £9,250 per year. You will be responsible for paying £3,465 of this to the University directly. Some universities will let you pay this termly or in instalments but others may expect it upfront.

If you are eligible for a tuition fee loan from Student Finance England, you will be entitled to a non-means tested loan for the remainder of the tuition fee.

Years 2-4 Tuition Fee
For the remaining years, the NHS Bursary scheme will pay the first £3,715 towards your tuition fee. The remaining £5,535 will be covered by a tuition fee loan from Student Finance England. This means that over the entire 4 years you will only need to pay £3,465 directly to the university."

What makes me eligible for the bursary after first year? Where can I check my eligibility by putting my info in? I live in England and I am a British citizen, I pay home fees for my under grad. Do I have to pay back the bursary like student finance or not?

Sorry this might seem like it's obvious with a quick Google search but I can't find anything.

Please recommend the link, thank you

Hi there,

When it comes to medicine courses you should be entitled to the bursary automatically.

Your university will guide you on exactly how to go about this when you study with them.

So, if you have a particular university in mind we'd recommend asking them about this.

Thanks, Graeme
