Emily Cook, 4th year vet student, tells us what it feels like to prepare to enter the profession.
I am mid-way through my 4th year at Bristol vet school, with the end in sight and thoughts of what to do when I qualify beginning to take shape, permeated by worries about the challenges still ahead of me in the next year and a bit. Rotations. Real clients. Finals. Terrifying.
It feels strange now that just a few years ago I was happily working at the BSAVA in the Publications Department, copy editing and proof reading manuals, when the niggling idea that maybe I could be a vet crept into my brain. After checking on UCAS I learned that actually this might be possible. I have a Biology degree that meant I could apply as a graduate.
