    Hello,

    Hey well done for getting an interview☺️ So when you get there, after listening to a PowerPoint by the lecturer, you'll be split into two groups, one half does the tour first and one does the interview first. Once you start the interview part you'll do a ten minute question test, pretty easy. And then the presentations begin, most girls at mine including myself had a PowerPoint but some did just have notes or improvise. Whilst this is happening who ever was with you parent or guardian will be talked to by their financial advisor. Don't get too stressed and good luck!!

    I also have an interview at Hartpury, during the presentations does everyone sit in for each others or is it just you in front of college staff (lecturers/admissions)?

    It's in front of everyone there but don't worry cause everyone feels just as nervous. There was about ten of us in mine.

    With your presentation and ones you saw,what kind of things were included? so far I have done "why veterinary nursing?" "why equine?" And "why hartpury?" Was wondering if including stuff about work experience etc is worth while.

    Work experience is a really important part to include, it will help them remember you and it will show that your really interested in working in practice. Try to squeeze in any other work exp you might have i.e. kennels/catteries/shelters/yard or personal experiences with animals such as your own pets! Good luck!
