As mentioned on another thread, my DD was considering doing VetMed in 2020, although she's beginning to adapt her thoughts and is considering BioVeterinary Science or Animal Biology (and similar courses) or maybe Veterinary Nursing as well.

We're also planning on visiting Harper Adams on Saturday, although it depends on whether DD can get time off from her Saturday job. A lot of open days seem to be on a Saturday; it would've been better for DD if more were on Sunday.

She's also considering Nottingham, Nottingham Trent, Chester, Staffordshire, Liverpool, Man Met U, probably several others I can't remember at the moment.

Useful to know T hasn't said anything about that, will ask him. His older brother is in year 2 of university now but he is no help with this stuff as he was adamant he wasn't going to university at all and decided at THE last minute to apply for his course, he was lucky to get anything sorted in time.

T will be missing the very last week of term anyway, for our holiday so reluctant for him to miss any more time, but I suppose there will be other students off.

T will only be applying to Scottish universities. We've had all the dates of Open Days marked on our diaries for ages now, we will go see them all but we are hoping he will be able to stay at home whilst studying

Our elder son, who is 23, has recently gone back into education (Yay! after much persuasion from us! ) and is doing HNC in Mechanical Engineering hopes to do something similar to your son, hoping to get an apprenticeship to qualify to degree level
Good luck to him!

Ive just asked her, and she said she was allowed 3 days (I thought it was 2) in Y13 for open or applicants days and they were all told this by the sixth form.

I don't think my DD's college has a limit for going to applicant days midweek, we just let the college know when she would be absent on an applicant day.

Our first uni visit is next Saturday (23rd) at Harper Adams. This new course is set over the 2 campuses and you can visit both on different days, choosing which one you want to live at as there is a shuttle bus apparently.

Anyone else got anything plannned?

Not involved in 2020 intake but just wanted to say that my cousin is in her final year at Harper Adams doing a vet/animal care based course and has absolutely loved it there!

DD18 is taking a gap year and applying this time around - the same year as DD16, so we have double trouble - arrrghhh. We found the best time for open days was June - the big unis often had the days on both a Friday+Sat or a Sat+Sun - giving options - then adding in the extras that they think about over the summer in September/October.

Spreading them out is good... nothing so demoralising as traipsing round uni campuses 6 or 7weekends in a row - make sure they limit their number of choices to the ones they have researched the courses on.

Early doesn't really help much unless for medical etc where they have to apply so much earlier.
