    It's more of a chat than an interview, they ask you about why you want to do the course, your experience, why harper and what you know about the course.

    It sounds daunting but to be honest it was all very relaxed, I was really worried about it but it was fine in the end. Anything else I can help with ask away.

    Hi, I've recently applied for Harpers veterinary nursing ext foundation degree but was just wondering if anybody could give me any information on my chances of getting in as i know it is a competitive course or any interview tips and expectations.

    I am 19 and have just finished my Level 2 Veterinary Care Assisting Degree with MMM and i have also obtained over a years worth of work experience in a veterinary practice (just over a thousand hours) in the past year. However my GCSE grades at school aren't great which i feel wasnt through lack of capability but through lack of motivation at the time. I only have 5 A*-C which don't include maths or science

    Any information anybody could give me would be very much appreciated!

    This may be my choice through clearing if i dont meet my conditional offers. What are the chances there would be spaces for the foundation vet nursing course?

    I think it's more experience based so you should have a good a chance as anyone. I don't see why not have you had your interview through yet? Maybe try and get experience in another environment. Just to get a good range of experience. Just a thought



    Im not sure about clearing. Maybe ring admissions?

    Your parents stay with you for the first bit and then everyone has a talk with the course manager and he explains the degree, then your parents go on an extended tour while you either have a short tour and then your interview (or the other way around) then you go back to your parents/guest again

    Hi, I'm starting RPM at Harpers in september. But i did my interview at the open day in october if anyone wants any more information on what they are like. Not sure if all the interviews are quite general or more course specific though. Whats with all these 'mature' students who are 20 lol. I'll be old at 25 haha.

    I'll be 26 when I start Uni in September! You're classed as mature from 19 onwards i believe. We are just ancient. :-)
