Funding your degree

As a student at Leicester Medical School, you will be eligible for a standard Tuition Fee Loan from Student Finance England for the first four years of your course, just like any other full-time student at the University (if resident in England)

The fifth year of your course will be funded by an NHS Bursary.

  • Please visit the University's Fees and Funding section for up-to-date information on undergraduate finance.
  • Also please visit NHS Careers for information about how funding works for Medical Degrees in the UK.

Remember that Tution Fees are not paid up-front. Instead, you will start paying off your Tuiton Fee Loan once your salary is above a certain level. The BMA has information on current pay scales for doctors in the UK.

Intercalating Year

If you extend your course to six years by taking the iBSc, you will still receive a Tuition Fee Loan for the first four years, and will then receive an NHS Bursary for Years 5 and 6.
