So I have wanted to be a vet my entire life but because of the qualification i did (Btec level 3 extended diploma in animal management) there are no unis that would take that without either A levels aswell or GCSEs at A which i dont have. I was thinking about taking a degree in bioveterinary science or zoology first so that i could go on to a graduate accelerated vet med course but now im having second thoughts because everyone is saying that it is going to be so expensive and I know it would but its just really putting me off the thought of becoming a vet even though its been my dream since i was 5. S I was wondering, if a veterinary nursing job is a good idea or not, I want to care for animals so badly and im starting to like the idea of being a vet nurse. I dont want to sound selfish but i do care a lot about salaries and i have searched up averages and things and its not very much. Another thing that has also put me of the idea of becoming a vet nurse is also the working hours. I just dont know what to do anymore!

You may be eligible for Gateway to Vet Medicine course if you meet certain widening-participation criteria - these will be different at each Uni offering the course. This is a Year 0 'foundation' style course and successful completion leads to the full 5 year Vet course at the same Uni.

Look at the course at Bristol as one example - they do accept BTEC Extended Diploma : http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/under...inary-science/

Then don't even think about being a Vet - and you probably also need to rethink being a Vet Nurse.
You dont do either for the hours, or the money.
