This course is aimed at students who have the potential to become vets but do not have the academic entry criteria to apply directly to our five-year BVSc Veterinary Science course. It is a widening participation initiative for UK students who fulfil specific criteria. The Gateway course will develop your interest in and knowledge and understanding of the basic sciences that underpin veterinary science. It will foster professional behaviours and attitudes. Additional veterinary and related animal work experience will form part of the course. Successful completion of this Gateway course will enable you to join the BVSc Veterinary Science. Eligibility This course is only open to applicants from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland who are eligible for a contextual offer. Further information, and a list of designated schools and colleges, which is updated annually, is available on the Entry requirements and qualifications webpage.
