What is the easiest vet school to get into the UK?

This is a very tricky question to answer, veterinary medicine is notoriously one of the most difficult degrees to get into in the UK. There is extremely tough competition for places, as such, there is no easy veterinary school that one can get into in the UK. Having said that, it is important to consider the institutions that you are applying to. Traditionally, some of the newer universities are likely to receive fewer applications and therefore you will have a greater chance of getting into them - this includes Surrey Vet School, Harper & Keele Vet School, and, Aberystwyth Vet School.
