Welcome to the Dick Vet Podcast.

Throughout this series, we talk to students about their university experiences, in the hope of easing any concerns or worries that prospective students may have.

Whilst the first two episodes do have a specific focus on the University of Edinburgh’s Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, after this the topics and issues discussed are relevant for any potential student, regardless of discipline. This series covers a range of topics centred around the Veterinary Medicine degree offered by the School, such as what the programme and campus have to offer students. However, the main theme running throughout centres on students sharing their experiences before and during university.

Most importantly, the podcast is led by students of the University of Edinburgh. With student voices shining through in every episode, we hope to provide a clearer understanding of what it is like to study with us.

    Episode 4) Life in Edinburgh

    Episode 4) Life in Edinburgh

    Episode 4: Life in Edinburgh  
    In the penultimate episode for this series, the Dick Vet Podcast explores Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh. Two Veterinary Medicine Students, Audrey Ho and Vicky Rivera Marrero, join Steven in discussing what it is like to live in Edinburgh and what to expect upon arrival.  
    University is a big step in anyone’s life; not only are you learning how to adapt to a new way of learning, but most students will also be re-locating, often for the first time. By listening to the experiences of those who have made the move to Edinburgh before, we hope future students will feel more at ease when making the change themselves.

    Episode 3: University Life 
    In this episode of the Dick Vet Podcast, we widen the topic of discussion for the first time, as university life in general is discussed. This episode is a key listen for any student looking to start university, regardless of what degree they will study.  
    The guests on this episode all study different degrees at the University of Edinburgh and so they are able to provide a wide insight into what the University is like for different students. Host, Steven Rae, studies History; Tia Merrell is a Veterinary Medicine student and Heather McAdam is a Medic. The three cover topics such as welcome week, how to adjust to University life and what support systems are in place for students.

    In episode two of the Dick Vet Podcast we take an in-depth look at the University of Edinburgh’s Veterinary Medicine programme at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies. Steven Rae is joined by the School’s Head of Veterinary Education, Professor Susan Rhind, and one of our fourth-year Veterinary Medicine students, Zoe Ennis.

    Episode 1: Easter Bush Campus  
    In this first episode of the Dick Vet Podcast, we discuss everything we think students should know about the Easter Bush Campus, which is where our Veterinary Medicine programme is taught. We cover the many fantastic aspects of the campus which work together to provide the best possible experience to students - from facilities such as the working hospitals, to the community spirit embedded in all that we do.  
    Two very special guests join Steven Rae in these discussions - the Head of School, Professor David Argyle, and one of our very own veterinary students, Zoe Ennis.
