    Hi! I haven't found any other forum specifically for gateway 2018 applicants so I figured I'd make one.

    I have applied to Bristol and RVC gateway courses and wasn't eligible for Nottingham even though that was my favourite that I visited. This is my second time applying so I currently on a gap year. Last year I applied for Edinburgh, Nottingham, Bristol and Surrey vetmed and was rejected from all for various reasons.

    I just thought we could chat, has anyone got any interviews yet? What do you think of the unis you've applied to, I haven't been able to visit RVC yet but I love it, I visited Bristol last year and I love that too.

    Hi! No I haven't had any interviews yet. I got an email from Bristol the other day saying that due to the high volume of applicants it was taking a while to get through them all and they were still looking, which I guess is good news because they haven't said no.

    Have you sent the supplementary gateway formnor rvc yet? I'm still trying to find some letter to put with it for evidence. Also did you must print it off sign it etc and scan it back in?

    Wow good luck, I visited Edinburgh last year and it's so nice I would have loved to have gone but I didn't get the grades
    Can I ask what made you want to come the UK instead of any other country to do Veterinary?

    Basically, what first attracted me to vet school in the UK was that it is easier to get in than in Canada. But once, I started researching and really looking into things, I started really wanting to come to the UK because of the amazing animal rights scene other there. Animal rights is a way bigger deal in the UK than it is in Canada and that is what I'm really passionate about so I felt like it would be a great fit for me. I also have family in England which makes immigrating a lot easier

    I think the rvc form can be filled in online and you can just save it and email it. If it's easier to print and scan it's probably ok. Just trying to find some info on my household income before sending it off.
