[Videos] Sharing experiences of life at vet school
Back in 2015, when I was applying to vet school, I was frustrated by the lack of vet school application advice available online. I felt there was a gap in this area, especially when compared with human medicine, which offered many more forums, videos and blogs dedicated to medical school applications.
So, during the first lockdown of 2020, the prospect of several months of solitude and free time inspired me to find ways to add value to other people’s lives. The pandemic meant that vet school applicants could not visit the universities in person to get the feel of the campus, so I figured that it might be helpful to interview vet students from various UK schools to share their experiences as vet students. As vet school resumed in September, I thought it might be interesting to document final year being carried out during the pandemic, so I decided to make videos about that as well.
Now, alongside various informative blogs such as EdVet, AVS and Vet Medic Mentor, I hope my YouTube videos can contribute to this ‘vault’ of vet school resources and help students navigate the application process.
If you’re applying to vet school this year, I sincerely hope you find these videos useful and wish you all the best in your vet school applications!
