S1-S3 Vet Medicine Information Evening – Wednesday 27th November 2019

S1-S3 Vet Medicine Information Evening – Wednesday 27th November 2019

Vet Medicine Information Evening is aimed at S1-S3 pupils and their parents/guardians and will take place on Wednesday 27th November from 19:00 – 20:30 at the University of Edinburgh’s Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies at Easter Bush, Midlothian.

The event aims to give pupils and their guests an idea of what it involves being a vet and a vet student as well as what it takes to become a vet. By the end of the session, pupils and their parents/guardians should be able to:

  • Identify some of the variety of areas vets can work in once qualified
  • Discuss some of the main roles/tasks carried out by vets
  • Discuss the some of the main aspects of a vet medicine degree & student life
  • List all the universities in the UK that currently offer Vet Medicine degrees
  • List the main subjects pupils need to take when they get to S4, S5 and S6
  • Discuss some of the basics of the application & selection process for Vet Medicine

This is an exciting new event we are running for the first time this year. We hope as many pupils as possible will benefit from finding out more about what it takes to become a vet at this early stage in school and help prepare them for what will be require in their later years in school should they want to pursue a career as a vet.
