I'm not a vet student but I've finished sixth form and have many friends at uni including vets.
The work experience they had ranged massively, literally anything working with animals.
Most of them had at least been into a vet practice, if not regular work experience. Successful applicants also tend to have a longer history of volunteering/paid work in relation to animals in some way- for example, at an animal shelter, an animal charity, a grooming parlour, a zoo, a farm or a wildlife park.
