Hello! Welcome to VetTutor.
The heart of undergraduate veterinary education.
We represent the evolution of veterinary education, and utilise the latest advances in neuroscience to enhance your revision.
We provide you with high-quality accessible revision material on the go, anywhere and anytime. Our platform is 100% mobile friendly.
We improve access to professional subjects for students from less affluent backgrounds. Our platform is free for students in the developing world.
How we started
All you need to know about who we are, what we stand for and how we’re passionate about helping our users succeed in their veterinary exams.
VetTutor was started when an equine veterinary surgeon and a medical doctor joined forces who both believed that current resources weren’t good enough, affordable or user friendly to students. We are the UK’s first veterinary education platform to deliver high quality educational resources utilising evidenced based revision strategies. VetTutor is part of MediTutor, a company in the education sector.
VetTutor is an extensive question bank with over 1,500 detailed questions and answers. Questions are written by students who have just passed finals or veterinary surgeons. We have a very strong ethos of only providing high quality, relevant questions, and teaching notes. Questions and answers are all peer reviewed by our expert team of over 10 vets, we have vets with a specialist interest in exotics, farm, equine and small animals who review questions in the relative section. There is a rigorous 10-point checklist for question answers followed by a detailed professional editorial process before a question is added to the platform. We do not add ‘filler’ questions to bump up the question count, we do not include past paper questions and we do not include out-of-date questions. We use user feedback and scoring data to allow exclusion of any underperforming questions.
At a time when being a vet is becoming increasingly expensive (think Royal College registration fees, the dreaded upcoming student loan repayments, CPD and the continually rising cost of living); VetTutor is committed to offer a quality revision resource at the lowest cost to yourself as possible. This is in part achieved by relying on word-of-mouth recommendations rather than funding expensive advertising campaigns. If you find VetTutor useful, please tell a friend!
We don’t pretend VetTutor offers a one stop shop to passing your exam, but we do believe by using the platform you can significantly increase your chances. There are a range of other resources available to candidates such as Quizlet, Vet-Revise, PeerWise in the UK and Zuku and VetPrep in the USA, some of which have merit. Our only advice is to use a combination of resources and speak to colleagues who have passed the exam – revision is personal, and one solution does not fit all.
The VetTutor Foundation
A platform for anyone, anywhere.
We don’t want money to be a barrier to education, and while we’ve priced our platform significantly lower than our competitors, we understand that the price might still be too high for some students. Everyone deserves a shot at their dream job. At VetTutor, we aim to support all those that want to have that opportunity, and reduce inequality in access to veterinary medicine. That’s why we offer a number of free subscriptions to students on Gateway programmes or those who study veterinary medicine in the developing world.
Making veterinary medicine accessible for all
It is disappointing that data from The Association of Veterinary Students suggests that students are struggling financially to even meet living expenses, with over a third now working part time to cover living costs. This has led to an average shortfall of £2000 per annum for students. We aim to keep our resources as cost-effective as possible. Providing bursaries for veterinary school admissions & more.
We are proud to provide many bursaries each year for students from Widening Participation backgrounds, including courses, classroom sessions and personal mentoring. We believe support should start at grassroots levels. We love working with individuals, charities, schools and other organisations to help students with bursaries, online courses and more!
On a journey to become the global leader of undergraduate Veterinary Education.
