If you’ve enjoyed studying the science subjects at school and college and you have a passion for animals then studying for a degree in Veterinary Medicine could be the right choice for you. So, what would your degree involve, and why apply for Veterinary Medicine?
As one of the most popular undergraduate degree courses it’s vital that you know the process of applying for Veterinary Medicine before you start filling in the application forms.
Your personal statement is what’s going to make you stand out from all of the other applicants that have the same high grades as you.
Veterinary Medicine degrees are notoriously competitive and just like a standard Medicine degree you’ll need a gleaming academic record to be considered by any of the seven universities that offer Veterinary Medicine in the UK.
A university open day is your chance to see past the marketing on a university’s website and prospectus and decide whether the institution is the right place for you.
Although the majority of undergraduate degree courses don’t require you to attend an interview you may find that for more specialist courses, such as Veterinary Medicine, an interview is part of the application process.
If you’re interested in studying Veterinary Medicine you’ll know that you’ll have a challenging, and sometimes difficult, career ahead of you. However, you’ll also know that the rewards can be big, both emotionally and financially, making it a worthwhile career if you love animals and have a passion for biology.
To be able to practice as a veterinary professional in the UK you’ll need to register with Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) and pay the required registration fees.
