Uclan or Chester uni?

Has anyone has any experience with either unis? Looking to study bio veterinary science.
Hi @Ellie_m05,

I hope you're doing well 🙂

Although, I don’t study Bio Veterinary science I have studied at the University of Chester since 2020 so I thought I would tell you a bit about the university/Chester.

One of the best things I like about the university is that they offer support while you study such as the careers and employability team who can help with interview techniques, CVs, general guidance, and they have a job/internship board, there’s also academic support which you can book appointments for if you are struggling with anything in particular for example: referencing or writing critically. The university also offers a wide range of wellbeing support such as mental health/ wellbeing advisors, counselling and more.

In terms of your course this page might be useful for you to look through as it goes through modules you will study and how you will be assessed: https://www.chester.ac.uk/study/course-search/bioveterinary-science-bsc-hons-single-honours/

The University of Chester is within walking distance of the centre of Chester which has lots of history including the famous Rows with their multi-level shops and cafes, the Chester Cathedral, and Roman walls. There are plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants, and bars. Plus, there are great transport links and you are close to both Manchester and Liverpool if you fancy visiting a bigger city.

I hope this helps a little!

Best wishes,

Thank you ☺️
Hello,

I study Medicine at UCLan, and I would like too share my experience to help you with your decision. I also really recommend attending an open day or arranging a campus tour to help you get a feel of what its like to study in either university.

UClan is a big university with many buildings and even campuses, the students are friendly and the facilities are high tech. I find that there is also a big push for students to get loads of work experience and internships throughout their studies.

The main campus is in Preston, a small but dynamic student city with everything you need. It is also 2 hours away from London and as quick as 30 minutes from Manchester. You will find a lot of international students as well which adds to the dynamic atmosphere.

I also found the UCLan has a lot of services for support like a mental health team and also a career team.

The uni is also opening a new veterinary school in 2025 with a lot of cool facilities. https://www.uclan.ac.uk/schools/veterinary-medicine

I wish you the best of luck with your journey, let me know if you have any extra questions.

Hi @Ellie_m05 😄,

I'm excited to share my experience as a veterinary student at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), and I hope you'll find it helpful!

At UCLan's Veterinary School (which includes Bioveterinary Science) there's a strong emphasis on giving students plenty of hands-on experience through work placements and practical sessions. The Bioveterinary course places a significant focus on developing research skills that can be applied to careers in animal-based science.

From my experience, the new facilities at the vet school are fantastic. You'll have access to state-of-the-art laboratories, the anatomage suite ( 3D models of various species!) and additional facilities tailored to have an great learning experience. I also find that the teaching staff at biovet, who are the same as those in Veterinary Medicine course, are highly experienced individuals from diverse backgrounds, including research.

UCLan is also great in terms of providing mental and academic support. I've found that both students and staff are incredibly approachable and always willing to help out.
I hope this information help you with your choice,

Best of luck😊
