Bioveterinary Science Hopefuls 2014Watch this thread
I'll go ahead and introduce myself.
I'm an international applicant from the US, and am applying to couple of biovet sci courses and animal science.
I was originally planing to go into vet med and even got the grades and w/e but ultimately decided that I wanted to do more research than hands-on work, since my primary interest continued to be anthrozoology.
It'll be great to hear from anyone who's also applying to biovet sci.
Hi I'm applying to Harper Adams and Royal Veterinary College to do Biovet science
Im from Manchester. I'm also applying to Surrey, Liverpool, and Nottingham for Veterinary medicine.
Thanks for making a thread for us prospective biovets - weve needed one for a while haha
First choice is vet med at nottingham, then zoology at sheffield (got an interview)
Leicester flat out rejected me for zoology
You got any idea what you'll firm/insure?
I can't decide between Surrey and Lincoln :/ I like how the work is assessed in Lincoln and I like the location and facilities in Surrey. I've already been to an open day for Surrey and im going to one in Lincoln at the end of the month so hopefully that'll make mind up
Lincolns is a little less science-focused in the first year with behaviour etc, and those are the units I enjoyed less in the BTEC so far
I'm not actually sure whether il firm Surrey or Sheffield (zoology) any more though, assuming I have to make a choice between the two :P
Surrey's winning at the moment though because of the science elements - toxicology and pharmacology sound so amazing :')
It's alright, not the best.
I'm the first person from my course to apply for vet sci apparently, and my chances are very slim, but that means there's still a chance so I went for it.
We went to a zoo for part of our behaviour thing, observed wolves and orangutans, which was alright, but the assignments themselves were awful :P
Maybe observing a tortoise wasn't the best thing you could have done, though I'm sure it was pretty easy -
32 minutes: No change.
43 minutes: No change.
Would you rather do bioveterinary or zoology?
Right now it's veterinary > bioveterinary > zoology, but given veterinary is a long shot il probably be going to surrey.
I wanna see how the interview at sheffield for zoology goes though, so i have as many options to choose from as possible
I accidentally wasted a slot by applying for the foundation one too and my dad told me after that he had made a mistake with the household income thingy and we might not qualify iunno :P
It's unlikely I'd get into that one anyway - 5 spaces for the whole country to apply to
Yeah, you're right, I'm still hopeful for the preliminary one though, it'd be literally the best thing to have ever happen in my life so far if I got in ^^
I'm predicted D*D*D*, and if I get over D*DD i qualify for a scholarship, and the offer is only DDM.
Means I don't have to stress as much this year if I don't get the vet one :P
and there're 5 spaces on the one i probably never qualified for anyway, and 25 on the one i can legitimately apply for, so it's not the end of the world ^.^
