It doesn’t offer veterinary medicine, there are only 9 universities in the UK that do - RVC, Cambridge, Liverpool, Nottingham, Bristol, Surrey, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Harper + Keele. Unless u r thinking of veterinary nursing?? Or a bioveterinary degree??

Apologies, do excuse me. I assumed veterinary nursing was the same thing.

Hi! The A-level entry requirements for Veterinary Medicine and Surgery at Harper Keele Veterinary school are as follows -

'Grade A in Biology or Chemistry

A second science subject preferably at A, but no lower than B (including Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths, Further Maths and Statistics)
A third subject of your choice, preferably at A but no lower than B (excluding General Studies and Critical Thinking and a second maths subject if used as a science above)'


So in terms of what you are currently studying at A-level, you would meet the entry requirements in order to be able to apply here
