I'm applying too for the BSc after a gap year. RVC would be my first choice, although I wouldn't turn down Bristol to do VN+BVS.

Working with animals in a hands on role is something I have wanted to do for a while and when I researched into veterinary nursing it just seemed ti fit, supporting animals throughout their care and treatment it exactly what I want to do.

How about you? why veterinary nursing?

Work experience wise I have been volunteering at a Hedgehog hospital for 5 weeks, and am going to spend the rest of the year getting as much work experience as I can as I know I don't have enough at the moment. I'm also going to be doing the animal nursing assistants qualification while I do this

Yeah, the entry requirements for the Uni I'm applying for are to have a minimum of four weeks animal experience with at least two weeks in a small or mixed veterinary practice so I'm email around all my local vets to see if they'll have me

I'm hoping to apply to Harper Adams << first choice , Myerscough HE college, Nottingham Trent. I'm not sure at the moment if I will be applying to anywhere else. I've done 6 weeks in a small animal veterinary practice, 1 week at a horse stables and I've got weeks booked for next Easter and summer holidays at a small and large vets practice.

thanks I really enjoy doing work experience as there's always something different to see, plus the staff are really friendly. I did 4 weeks in a small animal practice during the summer holidays.

is there any way you can travel a bit further out?, or are there any farms or stables close by? as long as you have a least some veterinary experience, and the rest made up of stables/farms/pets shops/shelter etc I think that will be fine

Where are you applying to?

Some places only want 2 weeks done before your interview (which would be in January/February) and you could make up the weeks in hours, last year I was in the vets on a Wednesday after school for 2 and a half hours, so that's made up one of my weeks, you could do your work experience this way once you find somewhere
