    So I'm applying for universities currently and I want to study veterinary nursing, my GCSEs and BTEC grades are good so that isn't a problem however for some of the universities they say that I should have around 2-4 weeks worth of work experience in a veterinary practice and I won't be able to get that much in time for the ucas deadline and the fact that I will have to skip college and work just to pull it off. (which I don't really want to do in fear of falling behind and getting fired rip)

    My main choices at the moment are Warwickshire and Middlesex university in London. But while Warwickshire requires 4 weeks, Middlesex doesn't even mention anything about work experience at all for the veterinary course. I'm doing work experience at my college livery yard for my course requirements and I'm getting distinctions in all my modules and estimated a D*D* plus I have knowledge of handling exotics and domestic pets and have equine and domestic pets myself. would this and a good PS help boost my chances? ucas is stressing me out here lol

    Work experience for courses like this is normally really important. If you can talk about anything you've done thats relevant and what you got out of it then that should help. I believe it's less competitive than vet med where you really need to have a lot of work experience, but I could be wrong.

    Morning,

    Happy to hear that you are interested in studying here at Middlesex!
    I am currently doing my Masters and I did my Bachelor here
    There is a lot to get involved in (sports, societies, jobs on campus, volunteering...) and many great ways to make new friends!

    Our entry requirements are: 96 UCAS points and A minimum of 5 GCSE's at grade C or above in English Language, Mathematics, one Science plus two other subjects (or equivalent) are required.
    However, having some experience will definitely help you in your personal statement
    Did you have the chance to come and have a look at the campus?
    We are running an open day on the 25th of November and it would be great to see you there you can book y our place here: www.mdx.ac.uk/opendays

    Have a great day and let me know if you need any help!


    Ludovica
