I'm a long way off dealing with UCAS, etc, as we're not even into GCSE's yet, so apologies if this is a silly question but I'm thinking from the view of financial planning:

Is it feasible to commute to medical school or does this type of degree require you either to 'live in' or live very close? I'm assuming you have ward training with shifts perhaps(?), etc.

We live approximately an hour away by train and there are so many medical schools in London which could be aimed for, depending on your responses.

Hi Franticmum - in London a fair few people do live at home and some commute quite a way whether living at home or not. (eg one girl lived in St Alban's and commuted to UCH) You don;t have to live nearby - just more fun that way.

Usually the training is 9-5 until clinical attachments and then after that it can vary - even then most is during the day and you don't have to stay around but you get more out of it if you hang around and are there when the patients are being admitted.

My niece started off with commuting to south London initially for the first two years but switched to renting a room, so she would have more time to study.
