Royal Veterinary College in University of London reviews

Anara B.

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 normal information from live people (it was difficult for me personally). I study in London at the Royal Veterinary College on a bachelor's program (as in Russia, this is the first higher education), and I am very pleased with the organization of the trip from Smapse.

This institution, I confess, caught my eye almost by accident, but I always wanted to engage in animals (parents had a farm, so since childhood I was in the "topic"). I know that abroad a veterinarian is a very necessary profession, in demand and paid well, because I thought it would be great to combine my interests and love for animals with a good diploma and the opportunity to study abroad.

Of course, it was difficult to enter. We with Smapse (thanks again, without you would be nowhere!) Practically 3 years were prepared: preparatory courses, IELTS exam (universal test for knowledge of English - without it foreigners do not accept anywhere), academic English, collection and translation of documents ... from the European Union is much simpler (not to mention the British), but to students from the CIS are respectful (the level of knowledge is usually good), but the bureaucratic moments are just a mountain. I needed a Foundation program + to take an academic semester (it's convenient to get used to the local system of studies and to bring up English to the maximum), 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. Although I personally know people who like more remote - rural and picturesque - counties, so this is a matter of taste.

Study is complicated, yes: filon, wake up and miss here will not work. And the severity as such is less than in Russia, just everyone knows: "how to sink - and you can break it." You will not be engaged - you will lag behind, learn everything more long and eventually you can fly out, but nobody needs this (after so much money and effort). I admit I still can not say that I know English fluently: in the evenings you relax, when it is possible to talk with someone in Russian with someone, sometimes it is hard to use terminology (you think up in your head how to explain and translate better), but in in general, you do not think about everyday things and think in English, the brain itself generates information on a foreign language.

Separately I want to mention the great teachers! Seriously, with them after the lessons you do not want to part. Maybe that's why we have a lot of joint practices, excursions, trips of trainers, a lot of "in the field" and laboratory work - it's never been the case with books alone. But you can not think that here all such souls are unraveled - the subordination is absolutely clear, yes, plus the British and the people themselves are quite closed. But I have enough, I try to get the most information from communication with someone who is smarter than me.

To study two more years - I hope, all will go gradually even better, the diploma will leave with good points, and I can find a job here. In terms of employment of foreigners, Britain is very skeptical (and London itself is not everyone can afford), but the diploma of such a good university, I hope, will raise my rates.
