Hey
I wanted to apply for Surrey because it looks so nice there but I don't think I'll get the grades. I think Biovet is more toward the Veterinary side of animal science

Hey, still waiting to hear from Surrey but the course looks good! What kind of topics have you covered so far and what kind of practicals have you been doing? Is it a big step up from a level biology and chemistry? Are you planning to do veterinary science after?

Also what is the actual university like? And how is the nightlife?

Thank you! hope you are enjoying uni!

Hi Laura,
In the first semester, like many other universities, the veterinary biosciences course is very broad. It encompasses basic cell biology, microbiology, chemistry, maths, statistics and a module in veterinary anatomy and animal handling.

So far I've had around ten 3hr practicals. Other than microscopy and cytogenetics, we have had the opportunity to attend five anatomy practicals where you can dissect and analyse different parts of domestic animals. For example, we had a respiratory practical where we handled a racehorse's lungs. The veterinary staff are great and many of them are within the (histo)pathology field which makes practicals really fun and interesting.

As for the difficulty of the course, I wouldn't say its a massive jump from A levels. Having A level biology helps, however other subjects such as chemistry and maths aren't a necessity as one of our modules in the first year covers the basics.

I'm personally not planning on studying veterinary medicine afterwards as my interests have always been in veterinary infectious diseases, epidemiology and public health but i know that the majority of people in my year are planning on studying vetmed at graduate level.

As for the university's night life, Rubix (the student union's club) is amazing! There are also many great bars and clubs in town.

I hope I've covered everything that you wanted to know. If you have any other questions please ask! I know how difficult it is to decide on a firm and insurance choice so make sure you find out as much as possible beforehand!

Thank you so much this is very helpful! The course sounds so good especially the dissections! Where else did you apply and how did you decide to pick surrey?

Thanks again!

I applied for veterinary biosciences at Glasgow and Surrey, bioveterinary sciences at Liverpool and RVC and animal science at Reading. Ultimately it was between RVC and Surrey and I chose surrey because of its links with the AHVLA and the Pirbright Institute as well as Noël Fitzpatrick teaching on the course. Also, surrey is in the countryside whereas the majority of the others aren't. I have lived in London before and although I like RVCs camden campus I didn't want to live in the city. (You don't get to visit the Hertfordshire campus at rvc or the leahurst campus at Liverpool for example). I hope this helps, good luck!
