    WORK EXPERIENCE FORMS




    Every year people get rejected from vet school for failing to complete the work experience forms for different universities. These are completed and submitted entirely separate to the UCAS form, however your application is not complete until they are done.

    These forms are mentioned in prospectuses, at open days, and on the vet school websites, so there really is no excuse for not getting them filled out. Don't be one of the people who gets rejected for simply not checking a website!

    For your convenience:

    RVC: Online 'Applicant Work Experience Form' to be submitted by Saturday 15th October.
    Edinburgh: Online 'Work Experience Summary' to be submitted by Saturday 22nd October.
    Liverpool: Online 'Work Experience Questionnaire' to be submitted by Thursday 20th October.
    Nottingham: Work experience questionnaire given out by the university, by email or letter, 1-2 weeks after application submitted.
    Bristol: Form sent out upon invitation to interview, previously between October and March.
    Surrey: Form sent out after applications submitted
    Glasgow: Work experience form sent out by the university upon invitation to interview, between November and March.
    Cambridge: TBC

    It is still entirely your responsibility to check the university websites and prospectuses for details of the application process. No responsibility is accepted for the above information being incorrect.

    Thanks to Nox1 and Adam the vet for helping to keep this information up to date.

    If it is with animals and relevant to vet med, yes.

    Work experience can be paid or voluntary, a specific placement or ongoing, and arranged through your school or not.
