Next Steps

VETNET LLN is here to help students on vocational courses progress further to college and university courses. One main job of the network is to map out the different ways that you can move from your current course into a higher education course at university or college. VETNET LLN was set up to plan out these progression routes for veterinary and animal related subjects.

'Top up' qualifications

ParrotsMany universities and colleges accept students directly into years two and three of their degree programmes to allow you to upgrade your HND or Foundation Degree. The important thing to check is that you have covered similar topics in your course to students on the course you wish to join. This will improve your chances of success as you will already have the background knowledge that will allow you to tackle the degree course. The admissions tutor for the course will normally be the best person to advise you of the overlap between the courses.

If you want to transfer onto a degree it is best to contact the university or college directly to discuss the particular requirements for the course.
