Quick update on the Career Development Loans situation.
I have contacted Ruth Harrison at the UCD fees office and there is good news... the University is going to register the course DN401 - Medicine (Graudate Entry) with the Skills Funding Agency, so that UK citizens have an opportunity to apply for financial aid up to £10,000 GBP, 80% of which must be used for tutition.
The loan will be repayment free for 36 months. Interest and Capital repayments start after that.
It will take 4-6 weeks to register the course, and then another 4-6 weeks for the application process, so not very helpful if you are looking to use this money to fund tutition for the first semester of this year.
If anyone wants to utilise this facility, contact details are below:
Barclays Bank Career Development Loan Team: 0845 60 900 60
You will need a Barclays or Co-Op bank account (dont have details for Co-op sorry).
Skills Funding Agency: The contact who is aware of UCD registering this course is called Roselyn. Phone number: 0800 100 900.
Hope this helps those still looking to start this year.
