While things have been difficult undertaking our clinical year during covid the staff have been very accommodating and have worked hard to still deliver as good of an experience as possible, so I am very grateful. I can imagine that when things return to normal it will be a first class experience.
Careers fair is well run and revive plenty of emails about opportunities. But careers service are not always very good at replying to emails.
Great in person teaching. Sometimes online learning could be more balanced ... a mixture of interactive tasks as well reading, videos and individual tasks.
Clinical teach facilities fantastic. Biggest and arguable best small animal hospital in Europe. Expansion of teaching faculty too.
Plenty of support offered whenever I’ve needed it.
Overall I would say I’ve had a very positive experience so far. The facilities and teaching standards are very good and I appreciate all the work the uni has put into helping the students through the pandemic.
This year hasn’t been anywhere near as immersive as other years and I feel that this has massively impacted my learning and motivation. Although it is not the university’s fault it is still not what I would expect for the money that I am paying and I would expect a reduction is fees in the future to compensate for this lack of learning
Mixture of online and in class lessons blended learning
We haven’t had much access to our campus
I have issues with the finance support at my university
I have really enjoyed the content however because of COVID this year has been a strange one and at times it feels like I am not at uni as there has been so much self study.
There is plenty of discussion on future career prospects and people you can talk to to seek specific guidance from.
The hours are long as we are expected to put in as many hours as a full time job by this is expected of such a content heavy course. The online learning is generally well planned and the Q&As help clear up any confusion.
Cleaning has been improved because of COVID. There is plenty of equipment as this is required for such a hands on course. The Camden library is however very small.
Sometimes the emails sent are very generic and it feels as though the uni is simply covering all their bases. That being said there is support available if you know where to look.
I felt there was a lot of things we missed out on in our final year because of covid but very grateful that we were able to complete our in person rotations. The University has been good at telling us what changes they are making and why.
Most people go straight into a job, whether you did a science, veterinary or nursing course. The careers fayres are well attended. Not much uptake of careers advice but that’s because the courses directly link to a profession
Part online part in practice rotations
The two hospitals have high standards for equipment and facilities Never struggle to find computer space normally though the main hospital tea room is usually packed (pre covid)
Support is there, depending on what you need it can vary in quality.
I like the vet school itself and the course is amazing, varied and still a dream come true. Its very busy but the passion keeps me going. I wish it was cheaper.
Echoed lectures Some bad lecturers
Camden yes, PB no
Overall it has been a bit of a shock to the system both good and bad. It took time to adjust and find a good rhythm but I have loved seeing how much I have grown and learned from this experience which if I think about has been within a relatively short time frame. I look forward to the future and seeing how I will change over the next coming years, who I will meet, what I will learn and just generally what this crazy new university life has to offer. It has been tough but I feel so privileged and proud to be given such an opportunity of education.
During freshers fair one could sign up to wider veterinary organisations to be given opportunities to branch out e.g. in the workforce and gain experience and more applicable knowledge.
I like how echo allows us to review lectures and go over bits we missed. I think it would be useful if perhaps we had access to a summary sheet of info for lectures and a quiz after each topic which focuses on the learning objectives that we could take as many times as we needed to help us see if we are on track.
I think we have a good system whereby we have students who ask for our feedback in order to make improvements however perhaps there could be an area where people can leave feedback as opposed to questionnaires being sent as only some individuals respond to this.
They are satisfactory. However, the library is very small and the gym doesn’t have sufficient equipment.
The university is at a fairly good distance. I would say perhaps the information given originally was a little misleading as it takes 30mins when walking slowly and 20-25 of walking at a fast pace. All in all though yes I would say so.
There is a vast array of societies and sports to suite a wide range of different individuals. However, I think price is the main issue as I have met many individuals who cannot afford to do the things they love so perhaps there could be a way of making some societies more accessible.
Tutors don’t really offer any support and I’d say feedback is minimal. Counselling is there if you need it.
The RVC is a brilliant university to study at- the motto work hard play harder definitely sums up life at RVC. We are studying one of the most university intense courses and have worked so hard to get a space to study vet medicine, yet we always find plenty of time to let our hair down as well, whether that be partying or playing sport, or sightseeing, with the whole of London on our doorsteps there is no way we can get bored! RVC has a great sense of community between all year groups, combined with lectures from European and worldwide specialists and the accolade of being the oldest and biggest vet school in the UK!
A degree from the RVC is unique in that it is AVMA accredited- the degree is recognised in America. The degree is also transferrable elsewhere around the world, Australia, New Zealand.
Lecturers of very high standards in terms of specialisms, and a lot of contact time per week in form of lectures, group work and practicals.
student-run bars on both campuses with cheap student drinks deals. good support from the su and variety of sports socieities
London's awesome. And that's coming from me- a country bumpkin at heart. Not as expensive as everyone makes out if you go to student nights. travel is so easy and pretty cheap
I've really enjoyed uni life here there are so many nice people. I've made loads of mates in around uni, life I so good here my course is cool my teachers are all really good.
this uni is so Friendly and Is a very welcoming place to be with lecturers always willing to help whenever you need them! They are always there to help you be the best you can at what you do!
