Nottingham but only the 6 year course - of which there are 20 places. Harper and Keele accept it too. Each have their own requirements with it so you’d have to read the fine detail to make sure it’s the correct access to HE and sufficient distinctions

You stated Midlands based, so I only informed you of those two. The next nearest uni’s would be Bristol, Liverpool and then UCLan and RVC. So you’ll have to research if the qualification is accepted and if you’re willing to commute (which is unlikely for the 4 stated if you live Leicestershire) or move there.

With regards to UoN, it would be commutable as it’s based in Sutton Bonington. HKVS is two different campuses so you’d have to travel to both Keele (stoke on Trent) and harper Adam’s (Newport). I can easily commute to both from Birmingham but that’s because geographically it works out. But HKVS course really doesn’t support studying from home/distant learning. When I spoke to UoN when applying back in 2022 they were supportive about distant learning but compulsory and practicals must be attended. But with how competitive vet med is, you really need to apply for as many places as possible. So I would recommend two as a bare minimum

Brilliant thanks for your help. Commuting isn't really an issue as long as it's manageable around studies. I previously did a midwifery degree and working 12 hrs shifts ontop of study on top of more than 1 hrs commute would be awful
I'm a Nottingham student with a friend who travels a similar distance as you would be planning. She comes into uni for 7 and studies before to avoid traffic.

Just be aware you will be expected to be *in* university 9-5 Monday-Friday most days (except Wednesday afternoons usually). You will also be looking at doing around 10 or so hours of private study on top of this per week. So its up to you whether this sounds manageable with your commute and other responsibilities. But it can be doable if you're disciplined and organised. :smile:
