Second degree funding (Years 1-4)
There is no NHS funding available to students in years 1–4 of the A100 Medicine course or the BDS Dental Surgery.
You will need to self-fund the tuition fees for the first four years of your course.

Children and/or adult dependants
Extra funding for children including help with registered childcare costs is available via Student Finance. There is also an adult dependants grant. This support is income assessed against the income of a partner or spouse if applicable. The student finance service website will have more information about this support for dependants.
Additional learning support needs
If you require learning support related to a disability, long-term physical or mental health condition, or a specific learning difficulty, there is a non-income assessed allowance that may help with associated costs of this support. The allowance is called the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA).
