Practice makes perfect

Would-be vets following the College’s Medicine, Veterinary and Dentistry (MVD) pathway practised for upcoming university interviews with past student Amy Sanders on Tuesday (2 January). Now in her third year at the University of Bristol, Amy ran a group workshop to tease out our students’ views on topical issues such as ethics and new developments in the profession. 

Amy said, “The application and interview process is hugely competitive, so it’s important to prepare well for each stage. Doing mock interviews during my time at College gave me the chance to reflect on and refine my perspectives about key issues and debates in veterinary medicine. They also helped me to deal with any nerves before facing the real panel at university.”

Upper Sixth student Rebecca said, “I found the session helpful as it allowed me to hear other people’s ideas and perspectives on how to structure common interview questions. I also valued the advice from Amy as she was able to answer any questions on life as a vet student.”

Many of our MVD alumni give their time to help College students who are now following in their footsteps, so a big thanks to Amy for supporting our students on their first day back of what will be a very busy 2024.
