    three things:

    1. I want to include my zoo placement as part of the 4 references Surrey require because I didn't mention it in my ps and it was a nice reference but it isn't on headed paper
    I've already had to ask them to email me it because I lost the one they printed for me (:facepalm:) which was originally on headed paper since they have it in their printer so the emailed one just has a blank space at the top
    would it be too annoying to email again and ask them to put their header thing on the top ?? I guess I could just copy and paste their logo myself but that seems a bit shady
    otherwise I could just use another vet reference

    2. does anyone know if Surrey's questionnaire has to be filled out in one go or whether you can do it in bits throughout the five days?

    3. i'm SCARED i can't believe i'm actually applying

    I'm pretty sure all references have to be on headed paper. Otherwise the uni's don't accept them. I would just email again and apologise. It will take them 5 minutes and is important for you.

    I believe the questionnaires have to be completed in 1 go but I'm not sure if that's only for the SJT part.

    Me too!

    I am applying to Liverpool for Veterinary science. My UCAS has not yet been submitted as I am waiting for my reference to be written.
    I have 2 more weeks of work experience to do before I apply. Can I still fill out the Liverpool work experience form now and put it down as it would be completed by the time the form is due? Or is it best to wait until I have done the work experience and then fill out the form?

    The deadline for the Liverpool form is the 20th October I believe so why not wait until you have completed that extra 2 weeks and then fill it out as they state that future work experience cannot be included.

    Thank you. I was unsure because I did read that "Placements not yet completed cannot be included in the questionnaire."
    But then I opened the questionnaire and its states "You should note that we do carry out random checks to ensure that the work experience claimed has been completed or planned"

    Most of mine have been signed so I guess I should be fine.

    Hi all,

    I am a mature applicant applying to vet med for 2018/19. I have a BSc an MSc and did the IB instead of A-levels. I didn't do chemistry at IB so i can't apply to graduate entry, but that's no issue really, only one extra year. I have my own business working with dogs, got 3 months experience in an animal testing lab, 2 weeks at a vets, some days at a kennels, an abattoir and an alpaca farm. Also did a load of farm work during my degree and masters which I am including though it is after the cut off date for RVC. Just waiting on one more week at a vets then I'll send in my application. Applying to Notts, Surrey, Bristol and RVC. This deadline is getting mighty close!

    (:

    So I was looking on RVC's website and I noticed there was something on there about making them aware before the application deadline if there were any dates you definitely couldn't do for interviews, as they may not be able to rearrange your interview for another date. For example, I know I have my driving test at the beginning of December and wouldn't be able to rearrange this around an interview. Does anyone know if/how I should contact them and if other unis have a similar policy? Is there some way to do it on UCAS or should I just email them and ask? Thanks in advance

    Last year, they sent the date/time of your interview and if you couldn't do it and had a legitimate reason they were fine with rearranging it.

    Hi! (New here) - has anyone applied to Bristol vet med yet this year, and if you have then have you had the work experience and professional and personal attributes (wepapa) form emailed through yet? It has to be done in one sitting (can't save to come back later etc), so I'm just wondering if anyone knows the kinds of things you need to have with you before you fill it out?
    Thanks!
