Getting Into Vet School
If you're looking for advice on getting into vet school, we have a wealth of resources available for you on our website!
Getting Into Vet School - Grades
Veterinary Medicine is an academically challenging course, and so the grade requirements at GCSE and A Level tend to be relatively high. That said, there are variations between individual universities - we have written blog posts to help you to cross-compare and summarise this.
Getting Into Vet School - Work Experience
Work experience is required by the majority of vet schools - again, different universities have different requirements, but as a general rule of thumb we would recommend having at least two weeks in a vet clinic and four weeks of animal husbandry experience (farms/kennels/catteries/stables/etc).
Getting Into Vet School - Personal Statement & SAQ
Your Personal Statement will be submitted as part of your UCAS application on 15th October. SAQs (Supplementary Assessment Questionnaires) are sent out by vet schools following submission of your UCAS form. A strong performance in both is essential to progress to the next stage of your application: the interview!
Getting Into Vet School - Interview
The interview is the final hurdle between you and getting into vet school - every universities interviews currently, aside from Bristol vet school. Preparation is key here, so see our website for interview tips and tutoring services.
