Like Isaac said...out of London

From Manchester site
International students:
First 2 years: £14,200 per annum
Final 3 'clinical' years: £25,900 per annum

£106,100 @ 2.2 = S$233,420

From Dundee Medicine ( lesser still) Southhampton (more or less)
International students:
Pre-clinical 14150
Clinical 22000

London Accomodation/Living est £1,000 per month X 12months x5 years = £60,000

Location & course (5/6 years) determine finance outlay.

though I know of a student who went into Scotland (when it was much cheaper than London)
with only 2 years of fees & living expense. He worked himself to the bone/scringe on everything & applied for all grants/scholarships. His was a hardship, true grit but success story. He is presently happy at an Oxbridge univ doing his pet research. Kiasuness has its merits !

so do the math & the research..work those fingers

Hope you get to do it...oneway or the other !

Good and Cheaper ones are Bristol (GBP106k), Birmingham (GBP100k) and Liverpool (GBP96k). These universities do not require you to take the UKCAT. For more information contact their Singapore Society there. Cheers!

What are the minimum grade requirements for these schools?

If a person got straight B's for all subjects 4H2 and 2H1(GP & PW) does he still stand a chance to be accepted by these schools?

Thanks in advance,
Alexender

unlikely for UK and australia.

try the Irish universities like RCSI, TCD and UCD etc. I think some of them accept BBB. U can also try aussie unis like James Cook and Bond uni, though those are not recognised by smc though.

Heard this recently... Please check it out yourselves ! Like I said work your fingers !

There are the Asian universities which are much lower in cost than the AUS/UK ones and still recognised by SMC. In fact, I have heard of a number of SEAsian students going down to India and attaining their MBBS. Language was no barrier. Furthermore, some healthcare professionals from our local hosp go there for continuing education.

There is also Germany, where apparently it's at a fraction of the UK/AUS fees. if any at all. However they put you through 6months of language immersion. (Wish I had heard this earlier).

So check them out. best wishes
