Overview Why study veterinary nursing with us Our veterinary nursing degree was the first of its kind in Europe. It’s also one of the leading veterinary nursing courses in the UK – with a reputation that attracts students from the UK and overseas. Registered veterinary nurses are in high demand – with excellent employment opportunities both in veterinary practice and in the wider field of academia, research and the pharmaceuticals, too. In fact, 100% of graduates from our BSc Veterinary Nursing are now in graduate jobs or further study (Destinations of Leavers of Higher Education survey, 2017). Our hands-on approach means you’ll learn through a mix of theoretical study and professional experience. Guided by veterinary professionals, you’ll develop your clinical skills as you learn how to undertake a range of diagnostic tests, medical treatments and minor surgical procedures. Enhance your veterinary nursing experience with us You’ll have the flexibility to study this course at our London, Leeds, and Huntingdon (Cambridgeshire) campuses. Our course is run in collaboration with the College of Animal Welfare, which means you’ll be taught by one of the UK's largest veterinary nurse training providers. You’ll spend 50% of your study time gaining valuable professional experience and putting theory into practice at a veterinary practice. Once you’ve finished your course, you’ll be able to apply to become a Registered Veterinary Nurse with full accreditation from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. This will not only open up employment opportunities in general veterinary practices but also in places such as research laboratories, zoos, wildlife parks, universities, charities and pharmaceutical companies.
