    Hi

    I got a conditional offer from Harper Adams for Vet Nursing, however the condition was in UCAS points instead of grades (apart from needing a C in Bio). So I was wondering if any UCAS points that I got last year, such as the B I received in As Rs, the topic that I dropped for A2, will add onto any points that I get this year from my A2 results?

    Or do I have to gain all UCAS points solely from this year and anything that I got last year will not count?

    Hi, sorry for the delay in replying (Easter break). I think it would be best if you discussed your situation directly with the admissions team as they will be able to give you a more exact answer. I'm afraid I cannot discuss individual applications. Best wishes, Jac

    Hi - first of all, congratulations on choosing Harper Adams! We process all applications and arrange interviews where required, as quickly as possible. We endeavour to process applications within a few weeks of receipt, although sometimes this might take a little longer.

    If you are invited for an interview (as the majority of suitable candidates are), you can usually expect to receive a decision within 3 weeks of the interview date, although should this be significantly longer for any reason, we will keep you informed (in writing).

    Please do bear in mind that processing times can vary between courses as demand varies. But at any point, if you are concerned you are welcome to contact the admissions team to discuss your application (I can't discuss your personal information here). You can reach them on 01952 815000 or email [email protected]


    Thanks and good luck!

    Hey I'm looking to apply for next year but I live up in Scotland. I'm coming down for the overnight stay open day, but I have a few questions beforehand.

    I'm looking to apply for Vet Physio, and I already work at a stables and have been for four years nearly (knee op means I've had to take time off) I've had a weeks work experience in a vet surgery last year in March, with my dog being a therapy pet and already having confirmed this and not being able to be my experience with dogs. Im getting a weeks work experience with a Vet Physio (specialises in dogs/has a hydrotherapy centre) in June this year. Is this sufficient work experience? (The Vet Physio has said she may take me on at weekends to help clean and in the pool, etc.)

    And if I get an interview, would I have to be there in person since I live up in Scotland and travelling down may be difficulty?

    Hi Khaleesi,

    Let me run the work experience question by the admissions team and get back to you. You could ask for an interview when you are here in July, we have done that before.

    Thanks

    Hi again,

    I have just spoken with the course manager:

    The week in the vet surgery last March will not count due to being out of date/not recent enough.

    However, if you can get one week of good hands-on experience at the vet physio and if your work with horses is up to date (I assume you still work there?) i.e one week of experience between now and July, you will be eligible for an interview when you come to the residential (Harper Adams Experience).

    Does that help?
