Veterinary Gateway Programme

Course introduction

The Veterinary Gateway programme is a targeted Widening Participation initiative aimed at students who want to study veterinary medicine but who might not otherwise meet our entry requirements. This is a six-year course that integrates a preparatory 'Gateway' year designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to study veterinary medicine. Successful completion of the Gateway year does not give you a qualification in itself, but does lead automatically into our five-year BVetMed programme, which will qualify you to practice as a veterinarian.

This course is open to UK students only, who come from a Widening Participation background. The full criteria can be found on the RVC website.
