HELP! MSc and Medical Degree at the same time, university problems.
I am slightly concerned after a meeting i had with a staff member at my university. I am studying medicine (accelerated course) and i am returning this september to my studies after some time off due to illness. In this time off (8months) i registered for a part time Masters in Medical Education, i believe i am actually registered on the first part of the course the Certificate (PG Cert in Medical Educaton). I have been informed that my university may not allow me to do this, but obviously i registered whilst i was not official part of my medical school. Anyway i am returning in september and i was wondering if anybody could help me out with regards to regulations and what my rights are, am i allowed to study a part time MSc and my medical degree at the same time? Does it depend on the regulations of the university? What might the potential ramifications be? As i have already paid for my PG Cert, and obviously want to get my medical degree!
If anybody has any idea at all i would really appreciate it. Thanks!

As you say its down to your uni's regulations.
But it's not an unheard of rule, as we have the same rule here. A friend of mine was almost forced to defer when her PhD award was delayed due to staff illness!
