    I figure if I get in either:
    a). Get a loan beacuse I will make damn sure I pass and will be able to pay it back; or
    b). Borrow the money off of family (If the all clubbed together).

    I'll sort it out when I get there :yep:

    With the exception of having to find the first year's tuition fees, the rest of the course is covered by a NHS bursary and reduced student loan. You can still get a full-rate student loan for first year. So funding shouldn't really be that much of an issue...

    Combination of Student Loans, Money I have saved while currently working, and potentially borrowing from family/friends if I need to. Also plan to work during holidays if I can, I know a few landlords who can usually offer some casual barwork during non term time.

    I am trying to steer clear of Professional development loans if I can, and also from having to work while at university. I am not averse to work, but I imagine the workload will be high, and I hope to join a sports team, have a good social life etc. Also going to be maintaining a long distance relationship.

    If I need the cash though I would take up a bar job again or something, I did it all the way through my first degree.
