Getting into Veterinary Medicine: Top Tips for Applicants 

We had a chat with some vets to get their best advice for applying to study Veterinary Medicine at university. Here's what they had to say.


1. Be Prepared to Work Hard

As you might expect, becoming a vet does not just happen! The sheer quantity of work required to pass veterinary exams, and to even get on to the course, is astonishing. One of our sources, Louise from the University of Bristol, states that in her first year she sat 12 exams. Of these 12 exams some will be practical tests, others theory, and some are laboratory based anatomy tests. There are smaller coursework pieces to complete as well. 

The work load is nothing short of huge, but if you have the passion and determination, there is no reason for you not to become a top vet.
