I was told that the fees increase by about 10% every year.

You have to look at the individual schools and cities. In terms of tuition fees (actual school fees) Imperial, Kings College, Oxford and Cambridge are some of the most expensive. Many schools also have different fees for preclinical and clinical years (the clinical years are usually more expensive). If I remember correctly, most are about £30, 000 per year but the most expensive schools are more like £40, 000 per year.

If you add in the other costs like lodging and living expenses, roughly what do you think the annual budget would be? :scratchhead:

Try looking for the universities' cost calculators. For example, http://www.ox.ac.uk/students/fees-fundi ... ergraduate and http://www.study.cam.ac.uk/undergraduat ... l/finance/

Taking Oxford as an example, you'd be looking at somewhere between 32-36k GBP per year for 3 years of preclinical medicine, and then a further three years for clinical school in Oxford or London. At Cambridge, you're looking at 51.2k GBP per year (5 years Med school + 1 year intercalation).
