Widening Participation Vet Schools Network: National Virtual Vet Taster Event

Event: Widening Participation Vet Schools Network: National Virtual Vet Taster Event

Tuesday June 13, 16:30-18:00

Are you interested in becoming a vet but are not sure what the next steps are? Come and explore some of the UK’s vet schools at this year’s National Virtual Vet Taster.

Not all students applying to vet school have equal opportunities when it comes to accessing all the information and opportunities needed to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. This event aims to start to break down these barriers and provide you with all the information you need.

At this event, there will be from representatives from seven of the UK’s vet schools all in one place! You’ll get the chance to hear from current vet students about their experiences and ask the questions that really matter to you. If you’re curious about what university life is really like for current students, this is your chance to ask them all about topics such as student life, courses, societies, work experience and why they chose to be a vet.

There are two special guest speakers, where you can find out more about employability and diversity across the sector. There will also be admissions colleagues from each institution on-hand to answer your questions in the event chat.

The vet schools that will be present at the event are: Bristol, Edinburgh, Harper Keele, Liverpool, Nottingham, the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) and Surrey.

The event is FREE to attend and is aimed at students in Years 11 and 12 as well as prospective mature learners (aged over 21). We welcome registrations from students who attend UK state schools. You must meet one or more Widening Participation eligibility criteria to sign up.

If you have any questions about the event or the registration please email Jackson Paterson (outreach-healthsci@bristol.ac.uk) from the University of Bristol, who is hosting this event on behalf of the WP Vet Schools Network.
