Hi friends, I am May Yean, a final year vet student @ Cambridge Uni. With this blog, I hope to inspire and provide a resource to students on how to apply to vet school (in the UK!), what its like, surviving vet school and how your vet career can take you to many places 😊
The site is divided into these sections:

- Stories: A peek into what vet school is like (at Cambridge, anyway)
- EMS tips: Finding EMS, what to expect and how to prepare for it
- Study tips: Useful links to resources for pre-clinical and clinical years
- About me
Every 2 weeks, I share interesting veterinary articles, practical tips on how to navigate life and being the best version of ourselves straight to your inbox. If that sounds like your thing you can sign up to my newsletter below 😻
