Hi I’m looking at possibly studying veterinary medicine at Glasgow or Edinburgh unis and people have been telling me that it’s much harder for a British student to get in than a Scottish one? Is that true? Has anyone felt that they haven’t got an offer just because they weren’t Scottish? Thanks

Well in the Scottish vetmed unis, there’s different pools, which I based upon the different fees payed. Basically they do SEU (Scottish-Eu applicants) in one pool and RUK (Rest of UK) and then a last pool for international students
So you’d be up against English, Welsh and Northern Irish applicants.
In 2018, places were as follows:
SEU: 40
RUK: 32
International: 53
So honestly, I see why people would tell you that because 32 IS a very small number, whereas unis like Liverpool don’t have fixed quotas for example, so there may be a larger number of places for English students.

Ah ok that makes sense. So is that for both Edinburgh and Glasgow unis? Thanks

I think so, yes. But I'd advise you check for Glasgow
