Anara B. (review about Royal Veterinary College)

Show all

Good afternoon!

I think it necessary to write a review about my college, because the direction is specific and not so demanded, therefore it is difficult to find decent information. I study in London at the Royal Veterinary College on a Bachelor's program. I am very pleased with the organization of the trip from Smapse.

This institution, I confess, caught my eye accidentally, but I always wanted to work with animals (parents had a farm, so since childhood I was familiar with it). I know that abroad a veterinary is a very necessary profession, in demand and paid well. I thought it would be great to combine my interests with a good diploma and the opportunity to study abroad.

Of course, it was difficult to enter. With Smapse we have been preparing for 3 years: preparatory courses, IELTS exam (universal test for knowledge of English - without it foreigners aren't accepted), academic English, collection and translation of documents.  I needed a Foundation program + to take an academic semester (it's convenient to get used to the local educational system and to bring up English), I did everything in London. Of course, it's more expensive here than everywhere else, but the city wins from the first trip - believe me, if you like London, you definitely will not want to leave it. 

Studying is complicated, yes. You will not be engaged - you will lag behind, learn everything more long and eventually you can be expelled, but nobody needs this (after so much money and effort). Still I can not say that I know English fluently. 

Separately I want to mention great teachers! You don't want to leave them as you have a lot of joint practices, excursions, trips, a lot of laboratory work. But the subordination is absolutely clear, yes, plus the British are quite closed people. But I have enough, I try to get the most information from communication with someone who is smarter than me.

After 2 years stuyding - I hope, all will go gradually even better, the diploma will be with good points, and I will find a job here. In terms of employment of foreigners, Britain is very skeptical, but the diploma of such a good university, I hope, will raise my rates.
