If you're willing to put in the work, I wouldn't settle for a second class degree. WIth the correct subject choices and smart time management, any degree is possible. Just because you don't think you're able to get into veterinary, I wouldn't advise other people to go abroad.
sis how is a degree not worthy just because its abroad????? any degree across europe gives you the right to practice veterinary medicine in ireland and some degrees even allow you to practice it in the states. “second class degree”..??? whats the difference between graduating in ireland & graduating in slovakia ??
It has limited places for a reason, to produce the best veterinary practioners in the world, thats why UCD has such a high reputation. I think it's awful that people can go abroad and pay 10 grand a year to get a degree, and then return to Ireland, and mess up vet wages.
hunny the points are high because of the huge demand. if people didnt go abroad, ireland would literally have no vets as most of ucd graduates go to australia or the united states. whats your problem with people going abroad? salty? at the end of the day people can still practice veterinary medicine whether you graduated in ireland or poland or australia or japan. no one is buying a degree. also vet wages have always been messed up. that argument doesnt even have any correlation
