Training to be a Vet

To gain a place on a university course to train as a vet, you must normally have at least three A-levels at grade A.

These must include Chemistry, with the other subjects including Biology, Physics or Maths.

Training is a five year course at Glasgow, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Bristol and London and a 6 year course at Cambridge.

All courses involve a lot of holidays being spent on work experience at vet surgeries and farms.

Universities prefer to see that applicants have had a wide range of work experience as well as good A-level grades. Ideas for work experience would include: small animal vet surgery, large animal vet surgery, kennels, riding stables, farms (including beef, dairy, sheep, pigs and poultry) and even abattoirs.
