P1 Finances

“Can I afford it?”

Coventry is the Top 5 student city in England for affordability, but it's still usually a big concern for those looking to study medicine. The funding, particularly graduate entry, varies from standard UG courses. We typically have access to a combination of a Student Finance [SF] loan (repayable) and an NHS bursary or grant (non-repayable). You can ask SF for less than how much you're entitled to, but generally it’s best to apply for the maximum - it won’t change your repayments that much, and student loans aren't like 'typical loans'.
