Veterinary Department

We accept current veterinary students and trainee vet nurses for a minimum of 3 weeks. A placement provides valuable experience and knowledge in dealing with “exotic” animals, which the current veterinary curriculum does not cover extensively.

For younger students aiming to gain places at veterinary college, we encourage you to get as much experience as possible in general veterinary practices / farms / animal shelters etc. as this will be of most relevance to you.
