you should research doing vet in other countries. for example, poland has vet courses taught completely through english, with a lot of irish people on the course since its so hard to get in here

you’re better off going abroad, thats why im doing. the competetion for vet med in this country is too high. so many people apply and theres literally less than 100 places.. not worth applying here

also the requirements abroad arent that bad compared to here

I'd rather do 4 years undergrad then graduate veterinary than cheat a degree abroad. If you have the brains, you'll easily get into veterinary in Ireland.
Kim Kardashian  West
^people that have brains still dont get in due to limited places. So whats your point?

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.

It's meant to be hard to get into, yet people think they can go abroad with daddys money and buy a degree in veterinary medicine.

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 ??

“buy a degree” its called working hard for 4/5 years and earning your degree. not everyone has time to wait to be accepted into the only vet course in ireland that has limited places.

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.

Just because you don't think you can achieve 550+ points, don't justify going abroad and buying a degree. Thanks and goodbye.

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

people want to peruse their dreams. they’re not going to let ucd ruin their dreams of becoming a vet. go abroad if you can. absolutely nothing wrong with it

Do you not have to pay to go to UCD or something... what's the difference? The requirements are relatively the same if you go to Edinburgh, Poland, Budapest etc you still need high grades.
