    Do universities like students who have done ''City & Guilds Level 3 Extended Diploma in Animal Management'' or do they prioritise between students who have opted for the traditional Biology, Physics and Chemistry?

    Here's the link to the course: http://www.sparsholt.ac.uk/5750

    Thanks

    It is probably best too look at Uni's prospectuses and email admission to see if they accept this qualification. I think the majority of of students go through A Levels, and this may be the easier route for some Unis. Is there a reason why you do not wish / cannot do A levels?

    You can also consider doing a foundation course, designed for people who have vocational qualifications such at the one at Liv: http://www.liv.ac.uk/study/undergrad...-requirements/


    RVC gateway course accepts this: http://www.rvc.ac.uk/Undergraduate/V...quirements.cfm

    I think Notts has a pre-vet course too?

    Basically, it looks like you will need to go on a pre-vet/access course with the diploma, rather than straight into vet med. These are competitive as well, and require a lot of work experience as well before you apply.

    Hope this helps

    I am afraid there is no 'easier' way to get into vet med. Best of luck in your A levels!

    Thank's, Its a shame there is no easy way in life, or education. Was Veterinary that competitive 5-7 years ago?

    Life would be boring if there were no challenges!!

    I am sure in the recent past it was also competitive, though no idea for certain. In the past there were fewer places overall (fewer Unis & each uni took on fewer students then they have this year). If you do get into vet,then it makes it very rewarding knowing it is competitive. In putting in so much effort to get in, including making sacrifices, then it puts you up in good stead to be a vet. EDIT: But it is a shame when people who do work hard and are good applications don't get in just because there are limited spaces.

    My vets both qualified in the 70s and say that vet med was competitive even then. We suspect the number of vetty programmes like Animal Hospital and Vet School in the 90s when us lot were growing up may have had something to do with the rise in applicants.
