Why did you choose Reigate College?

I’ve known for several years that I wanted to be a Vet and knew the College’s MVD Programme had an excellent reputation for supporting MVD students.

How and why did you decide which subjects to study?

Chemistry and Biology are a requirement for Veterinary courses and I loved History at GCSE. Although not a typical subject to combine with sciences, I thought it was important to choose subjects I really wanted to study. The Introduction to Latin course was a bonus enrichment course!

How did you find the move from school to College?

I enjoyed meeting all the people in my classes and concentrating on the subjects I was most interested in. Having dedicated activity periods in my schedule made it possible to get involved with new activities and sports.

How have you found the teaching and support staff?

I’ve felt incredibly supported having been involved in both the Aspire and MVD programmes. My teachers and tutors have been brilliant too.

Being part of the MVD Society has allowed me to share experiences with other students applying for similar courses – a big help when the process became tricky or stressful. It’s been amazing having such a large group of students who really know what you’re going through.

What are your plans for the future?

I’m hoping to go to the University of Bristol to study Veterinary Medicine.
