You must apply for the Accelerated BVetMed programme through UCAS.
Deadline: 15th October for the following year’s entry. Late applicants will not be considered.
You should not apply to both the 5 year D100 and 4 year D102 programmes. If, at the end of the selection process, we feel unable to offer you the 4 year accelerated degree, you will automatically be considered for the standard 5 year degree instead. Applying to both programmes will not increase your chances of a place and will only reduce the number of veterinary medicine and science programmes you can apply for at other institutions. You may list a total of five courses on the UCAS application form, but only four can be for veterinary medicine and science programmes.
Please visit the UCAS website for further information.
International and EU students may find the UCAS for non-UK students information on the UCAS website helpful.
All applicants must complete the work experience questionnaire and send it by post to the Admissions Office, Royal Veterinary College, Royal College Street, London NW1 0TU. The completed Questionnaire must be received at the College by the UCAS deadline of 15th October.
Once you have completed your UCAS application you must send a full and official academic transcript showing all degree modules and results obtained (applicants in the final year of their degree should send a transcript showing modules and results obtained so far) to the Admissions Office at:
Admissions Office, Royal Veterinary College, Royal College Street, London, NW1 0TU
Make sure that you quote your full name and UCAS personal ID number. Final selection for interview will not take place until BMAT results have been received.
Please note that all applicants (except North American college applicants) must take the BMAT. It is the applicants' responsibility to make their own arrangements for this test and you must register early, even though you do not sit the test until after your UCAS application is submitted.
