Graduates applying to medicine- funding
I read the following on the NHS careers website (http://www.nhscareers.nhs.uk/nhs-kno...data/5344.html)
Funding for graduate students on standard five-year courses
Graduates gaining admission to the standard five-year courses will be eligible to apply for student loans for their maintenance but if they have previously taken a publicly funded higher education course lasting two years or more, they will not be entitled to receive funding from their local authorities for tuition fees and universities may charge them the full cost of their tuition. (Fees payable to medical schools by graduate students vary widely and details are available from the schools themselves).
It seems to imply that if you already have a degree which you received LEA help for, you cant have further help to pay tuition fees, but you will still get a loan...
Is this true? Im very confused!Yay! I got a 2.1!!! GKT 2006 baby!

Sorry to sound harsh, but this has been covered extensively on this site in other threads and there is a petition on another site. If you do a search you can find out absolutely everything you need to know and some stuff you probably didn't want to know!
