You should factor in additional costs into your budget, alongside your tuition fees and living expenses. A complete list will be provided following your successful application. The additional costs cover essential items you will need for the course such as:
Health and safety equipment
Compulsory branded and named protective clothing and equipment including:
- digital thermometer
- waterproof jacket and trousers
- parlour top
- small animal handling tunic
- clogs and scrubs (required in your final year)
Total costs for these items are £297.50. Our vet school shop sells all items at low cost.
Extra mural studies (EMS)
Undertaking EMS also incurs extra costs, but these are dependent on the location of your chosen placements in terms of travel and accommodation.
Students choose the location of EMS, so you might be able to undertake most of your EMS from your home - helping reduce these additional costs.
Final year placements
In addition, extra costs will be incurred in your final year placements. Accommodation is provided at some rotations but there will be extra travel costs. The school currently provides a travel allowance to help towards these costs which is paid directly into your bank account, to assist with these costs.
You should be able to access most of the books you’ll need through our libraries, though you may wish to purchase your own copies.
Please note that figures are approximate and subject to change.
