    When I spoke to the head of the vet school on the open day, he said adding extra references in if you have them is fine just because it looks good. I added all of my references in on one word document

    I feel they should put this on the website, cause it then gives those who can't travel to open days an advantage... I think they should have an open day notes page so people elsewhere in the world can benefit too

    I agree 100%...I got caught out by conflicting Liverpool documents and had to message the admissions team in a panic The open day I attended 2 weeks later cleared it up. And has anyone else noticed that for Nottingham, they mention that you need either 4 or 6 weeks in several different documents? Confused me a lot aha

    What did you have to do for Liverpool? I thought we just needed to do the work experience questionnaire.

    We did, but when I did it, there was conflicting fields of information - I emailed the admin team after completion and they edited their questionnaire and they said what i had submitted was fine and they'd contact me further if they needed anything else.

    From when I looked on the website, I thought it said you did that long commute each day... but it's been a while since I looked

    I think there is private accomodation near the vet school but the student accommodation is roughly a 40 min bus journey everyday ye

    Anyone else rejected from Surrey? I was under the impression that applicants were only sent the questionnaire if they first met entry requirements... yet my letter states reason for rejection as 'entry requirements not met'. Hoping for some more detailed feedback.

    Pretty frustrating... after the hours spent on their application process you'd hope for a little more feedback! I'm applying as a graduate too so not sure how I have 'not met entry requirements' :-(

    Good luck with the rest of your options!

    I’m applying as a graduate too! I was really frustrated when I found out too... feels like all the time applying was a waste 😣

    Definitely... so much time and effort spent getting to this point just to be rejected with no specifics :-( Fingers crossed they get back to us with some more info. At the open day Surrey said they took 35% graduates too so I was feeling quietly hopeful about my chances.

    It’s really disheartening isn’t it 😞
    Yes, I bet that made you feel more hopeful.
    Let’s just hope they’ll get back to us soon and explain why exactly we haven’t been successful. You’d think they’d take more graduates as we’ve had more experience (both in university and work placements) 😣
    Where else have you applied to?

    I'm struggling to feel very optimistic now. I've applied to Nottingham and both the standard and grad entry at RVC. What about you?

    I know, I always thought unis would favor graduates that have had so much more experience and are clearly dedicated to the profession if choosing to spend another 4/5yrs in education. I've taken a year out since graduating to work 3 jobs in order to finance the tuition fees and clock up more work experience. Having to wait another year to re-apply and do this all over again is not a nice thought right now
