Government decision to use Centre Assessed Grades

We are sympathetic to the significant disruption faced by those of you who were holding offers for 2020 entry and for whom the grades released on 13th August did not qualify you for entry. In response to the announcement made on 17th August 2020 by the UK Government and Ofqual, we await further guidance from UCAS regarding the release of Centre Assessed Grades. We expect to receive these updated grades directly from Ofqual via UCAS. If you were holding either a Conditional Firm or Insurance offer from us and your Centre Assessed Grades satisfy that offer, the HKVetS admissions team will make direct contact with you as soon as we receive them to discuss your options. If we are unable to offer you the place for 2020 entry we will guarantee you a place for 2021. Applicants do not need to take any further action at this time.

Combining the extensive resources of Harper Adams University and Keele University, the new Veterinary School is uniquely structured and will help students graduate with the required skills to be immediately effective first opinion practitioners in the rapidly changing modern veterinary and animal welfare industries.

Students will study a five-year programme leading to a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery degree.

During their studies students will be able to benefit from Harper’s long standing reputation in animal sciences and access to Harper’s farm and companion animal facilities, alongside Keele’s experience of establishing a leading UK medical school and significant recent investment in facilities such as state-of-the-art teaching laboratories.
