Do you guys think the number of applicants that have been guaranteed a place for entry next year because places this year are full will impact the intake for next year?

Honestly yes - but potentially no.

Universities will be unable to increase their number of places - and if anything pending how the first semester goes and how long COVID looks to be lurking may have to decrease their places - meaning there will be fewer available offers this year.

But on the flip side I suspect many applicants could be put off going to university and may choose a gap year - If I wasn't towards the end of my course I certainly would as paying £9,250 for online lectures is not value for money to me.

Hi guys,
I’m an Irish graduate applicant looking to apply to Bristol, RVC & then it’s a toss up between Surrey, Harper Keele & Aberystwyth.
Unsure which two of those last three to pick because I haven’t gotten to visit any of the campuses and there isn’t much information about the new course at Aberystwyth online.
Is there any of them that are particularly difficult to get into as a graduate or are all vet unis pretty much the same?

Aber may be a new school (as is Harper Keele) but I would personally choose both of those over Surrey - to me they lacked facilities that the newer schools seem to have but do your research and you will hopefully be able to visit virtual open days if not in person

I get max maintenance loan which helps a lot! Plus some savings from when i worked during my first degree, and a job whilst in vet school

I have an interview for the 4yr Bristol course next month, I know they’re interviewing up until March so could be that they’re doing it in batches.
