I am thinking of applying to UEA this year for 2013 start on the 5yr medicine course. I have two young boys aged 2 and 4, and I am trying to work out whether I would get to see much of them once I start studying (if I get in!). Do medical students have normal university holidays that follow roughly school holidays? Or am I kidding myself? It would also make childcare so much more expensive if I will need lots of holiday care. Can anyone advise?
