Vast Brexit thread merge part VI

    I don't disagree with the principle but to be fair, though, training an air force pilot is vastly more expensive than training a doctor or a nurse.

    Buy the time we take out the 'does not train' and remove the 'extremely limited competences' your point does not actually have one, does it?

    You can take out all you want. You can even report my post to the mods and then there won't be one...

    What else do you want to play that game with? Can we try Brexit?

    From what I've learned first hand, I'd say that by the time junior doctors are through with their training they've had enough.

    Underfunded, understaffed, unrealistic goals, assembly line mentality = hostility.

    I have never reported anything to mods. A grass I never was.
    Brexit? Sure, fire away.

    Partly.

    "On average it costs £220,000 to train a doctor over their five-year degree. Most of the training is paid for by the government but some tuition fees - plus rent and living costs - are paid for by the student."

    As if the Brexit thread couldn't get more depressing, PFM advertising has just offered me a "free pre-paid funeral plan".

    I’d have thought it depends on how many times they ditch during training..

    Grass or not grass, there is no trial.

    How much are tuition fees in the UK on average? In Portugal you'd pay 1000€/year x 6 years.

    They are
    capped at around £9k per year. Most universities charge at, or very close to, the capped figure.

    Ouch!

    The idea was that £9k would be top whack, charged by Oxbridge and that other universities would charge less. Unsurprisingly, none decided to label themselves as the cut-price university!

    I doubt that was the actual idea, more like it was put around as the idea and the gullible believed it.

    And Oxbridge say they cannot manage on £9K...

    Joe Hutch Mate of the bloke

    In fact, Oxbridge could probably charge double that and still be over-subscribed. Whether they could 'manage' is another matter.
