on my PS, what should i refer to the course as? the unis all seem to call it different things, so should i go for veterinary science, veterinary medicine or BVetMed, or should i use all of 'em?

Veterinary science or medicine; perhaps try to refer to the disciplines rather than the courses (e.g. talk about "medicine" when you're specifically meaning treating animals and "science" when you're talking about research, even if that's not really what how the courses split).

science is a shorter word, so when just talking bout it generally might be better to use this, to get you a couple mroe characters to use elsewhere, but i would agree with talking bout the different asbects separately.
Dotn say BVEtMed cos this is only the title used at RVC, so may not look favourable when different institutions read it

I referred to it as vet medicine on my PS. i hate the term 'vet science'. you wouldn't hear a medicine course being referred to as 'science', so why would you call what we do do just science?

if im talking to just random people who want toknow what im doin at uni then i just say veterinary because if you complicate things with for example adding science or medicine theyre always like oh so what is that then- they just dont relate it to being a vet!!
