This morning covered a presentation from the Clinical Director, on How to Become A Vet. It went over the basics such as UCAS, Work Experience requirements, and the course at Surrey. But he also talked about the wide range of roles vets can perform, including non-clinical ones in research and government.
While helpful for those unsure about the vet profession, I’m already set in my ways. I know what I want to do, and I’m not going to let anyone stop me. Vet school, here I come.
Goodbyes are always the hardest part, especially when chances are high we’ll never see each other again. Our vet group have already made plans to meet up soon, but we’re not allowed to keep in contact with our Ambassadors for health and safety reasons (silly, really, since we could end up at the same Uni in two years time?).
Luckily, I got Nic as my E-Mentor so we don’t have to part ways just yet. The program ends on the 21st October, and that’s when our communication channel will be terminated. Guess I’ll just have to make the most of that time.
So, while the Surrey Summer School may be over, my summer’s only just started. I have a week of missed college to work to catch up on this weekend, then three days left before the holidays begin (or, in my case, the real work).
I’ll keep you all updated, and if you have any questions about Surrey, becoming a vet, or Uni stuff in general, give me a shout! I’m always happy to help.
