That sounds reassuring. Harper Keele is good for me as it is only about 90 minutes away from us in Worcester but as it is a completely new course for vetmed in 2020 there are no students to ask about the actual course itself which adds an element of doubt.

Things we asked on the open days might be helpful (you have probably thought of all these things yourself, apologies if so):
How is the curriculum taught?
What is a typical timetable?
What clinics do they have on site for rotations in your final years or are rotations all done in offsite in vet practices?
Are students able to intercalate if they wish (study abroad during their course)?
In what year do you begin your animal handling? (Cambridge only start in year 4 whereas Liverpool start from your very first term in year 1... this could be important as you need to start EMS in your first year to gain all your weeks and having Learned the correct procedures to handle will help enormously).
What vet based societies do they have/plan to have? Again this is important as you gain a lot of knowledge and contacts through these.
Hope this helps a little.

DW has a friend who's daughter is also doing a vet/animal based course at Harper Adams and she's also loving it there. Apparently they are very supportive.

Wow. Robotic engineering. Sounds good.

I did try and get DD interested in Biomedical Engineering but it didnt appeal to her.

How many open day visits is everyone planning to do? I think we are up to about 5 now but no bookings made yet. We seem to be finding multiple uni's with the same open day dates!

We could be doing a fair few miles this Summer and seeing a few cities we've never been to.

We did 6 last year. 4 before summer and 2 after - ours were all at weekends so that was enough for us.

We were told by the school that if you are looking at doing more than that, then they don't really know what it is they want to do - as the courses run by each can be quite different - so they need to be a bit more discriminating.
