I was wondering if anyone is thinking of applying for a Sutton trust summer school for the summer of 2018. I'm thinking of applying for veterinary medicine at RVC or Cambridge but I'm still undecided which one to pick. The application opens in January and closes in march so I have plenty of time to decide.

There are 50 places at RVC and 10 at Cambridge for veterinary medicine. Nottingham has 24 places but the course for veterinary medicine is also aimed at zoology etc. There were 11,000 applicants last year for all the summer schools and 2,000 (approximately) got a place.

Do it.

Take it from a (former) lazy unmotivated slob, go do it.

Some unis have summer schools which can lead u on to get a reduced offer. I know bristol does this so do ur homework.

Highly recommend Nottingham's summer school. I did it 3/4 years ago (although I've changed my career prospects and doing a completely different course at uni), there were many university lecturer's and tutors who helped so much in terms of applying (e.g. how to write personal statement, how to get a high score for the UKCAT) as well as what to expect from uni. There are many fun events planned and you'll get the chance to meet very interesting people.

One of my friends that I met through this summer school who decided to pursue medicine got a reduced offer (although it was only by 1 grade).

Hey,
Do you know how much they reduce the offer by?
As I'm undecided between Bristol and Nottingham for the medicine strand - although deadline is quite far

With the Nottingham one I read that you get reduced money off your fees at university rather than a reduced offer, my bad for any confusion.

Yup that's what I read too so I wasn't too sure.
Thanks for clarifying
