    Hey there, okay I have a friend interested in doing medicine. Up to now shes just looked into the A100 courses wanting AAB+. But she found out from a friend about the 6 yr courses. At Southampton you need to abide by two of the criteria, she gets EMA, £20, is this enough or do you need to get the full £30? Also she lives with her dad as her parents are divorced and says her dads salary is about £16,000 but not sure for definite. Would this mean her dad gets a mean tested benefit as she hasn't asked, but wondered if parents salary could be one of the criteria?

    Hi. I do the above course at southampton.

    She would have to ask the university about the EMA. As for the benefits can she not just ask her dad?

    Parental salary is not one of the criteria. The full criteria is available online and its quite easy to find

    Hi! Excuse the intrusion, but I was intrested in this course myself and looked up 'Nottingham (via Lincoln)' but Lincoln seemed to be for Nursing and Midwifery :confused:
    If you can please help/explain, I'd really appreciate it.

    It doesn't mention how they view candidates with science A levels, only mentions GCSE requirements. I think more mature students apply, but there is nothing that says it is only for them.

    It says here:
    "The programme is targeted at applications with significant appropriate workplace experience or people with related vocational rather than traditional A Levels."

    Which im assuming means it is not targeted for those with science A Levels. From my perspective it would be good if it does because i could apply, but i dont think this is the case. Ill send them an email on monday.

    Ah yes you're absolutely right. I hope you get some feedback from them about whether you can do the course.

    Good luck
