    lol, the fees are difficult... I'm in london, so i'm going to have to pay 9000 a year at aberdeen, they still haven't properly announced the fees I would have to pay if i go to aberdeen though, english student studying normal subjects don't pay for their 4th year, would that apply to medicine students and then nhs pays 5th year? I highly doubt it but until they say otherwise, I can hope!
    I can just about afford the fees... Through my degree I've saved £20k can save money by staying with my uncle in aberdeen (not ideal, but he has a nice house lol), can prob pay the 3rd years fee using years 1-3 maitenence loan and then year 4 prob have to borrow money from family :(
    Not idea but better than nothing!

    Pretty good stats for the 2nd best Medical School in the country :)

    Of course my views are bias, but I highly recommend coming here...brand new teaching centre, brand new library (not medical, but still sexy anyway), brand new sports facilities and we're getting a brand new critical care building (which is massive) next year.

    Aberdeen ftw. ;)

    P.S. If you get interviews, I might be one of the tour guides, and I aim for my tour to be one of the most memorable...probably for all the wrong reasons.

    Sorry, what is the fee situation for Scottish students who have been to university before? If you do have to pay, how much is it and can you get a loan?

    I studied at university but had to leave before graduation for health reasons. So I'm not a graduate and not a first timer either!

    Hi gh70. Congrats on the interview and good luck! I'm a graduate too with the same UKCAT score as you and was just wondering what your Highers are like? (if you don't mind me asking). I've yet to hear from anywhere I've applied to and I'm getting impatient!

    Hey Claire,
    Aberdeen doesn't really care about the high school exams in grad applications (as long as you've got the required B in chemistry). It's all about your first degree and your extra-curricular activities/ job experience / volunteering.

    Hi Kensei

    Thanks for the reply. I was just getting a bit worried as my Highers aren't brilliant although I do have a B in Chemistry. Hopefully my degree, personal statement and reference are strong enough to get me an interview!
