Veterinary Science interviews

Interview information

Your interview invitation includes a selection of dates to choose from. Instructions on how to register for a date and time are included in the email.

What to wear

Wear something smart, but comfortable. You do not need to wear a suit and tie (but may do so if you wish). Please bring a coat and comfortable shoes for the campus tour.

For the forthcoming cycle, we may invite international applicants to interview for Veterinary Science, with the option of attending an interview in Bristol or South-East Asia.

Information about South-East Asia interviews will be in the email inviting applicants to interview.

We may also interview a small proportion of home applicants where we do not have enough information from the application and additional form to make a final decision. These interviews will take place in Bristol at the location below.

Interview location

Bristol Veterinary School at Langford, BS40 5DU.

If you plan to stay overnight in Bristol, see our information on where to stay.

For information on accommodation near Langford please email Hannah.Colton@bristol.ac.uk.

Bringing ID to your interview

You must bring photo ID with you to your interview. We will not keep a copy of your ID; we will just need to see it when you arrive to verify that you are the candidate we have invited. If you do not have photo ID, you will not be allowed to take part in the interview.

Examples of suitable photo ID include (but are not limited to):

  • Passport
  • Driving licence or provisional driving licence
  • College photo card
  • NUS photo card.

Support for a disability

The Veterinary Science course is academically and physically demanding. If you have a disability, we trust you have taken it into consideration before you apply and that you firmly believe you will be able to perform all of the tasks and responsibilities the course requires.

For advice on studying with a disability, contact our Disability Services team on +44 (0)117 331 0444 or disability-services@bristol.ac.uk.

If you think you might have difficulties attending an interview, please contact our Enquiries team for advice.

After the interview

In most cases, you will hear the outcome of your interview within two weeks. You will be able to see the decision on UCAS Track.

Responding to your interview invitation

You must respond to your interview invitation within two weeks of receiving your invitation by email. We will know you have responded if you:

  • register to attend an event;
  • add your details to the ‘I cannot attend these dates’ option;
  • or contact our Events team to discuss options if neither of the above are appropriate.

If you have not responded to your invitation within two weeks, we will assume you no longer wish to pursue your application at Bristol, and your application will be made unsuccessful.
