Course summary

Your degree will enable you to apply to join the RCVS Register of Veterinary Nurses. We are also the only veterinary nursing higher education provider to offer clinical rotations around one of the highest-level small animal referral hospitals in the UK, located on site. If you're passionate about animal welfare, this exciting degree can lead to a range of careers; from working as a veterinary nurse in general practice, to opportunities in the field of behaviour and welfare for animal charities or the commercial sector. Your first two years are based predominantly within the vibrant cultural hub that is Bristol city centre, where our pre-clinical facilities are situated at the UK's only School of Anatomy. You will also spend time at the nearby Bristol Veterinary School, located at our rural Langford campus, where you will be hands on with animals from day one. Bristol Veterinary School is home to an extensive range of clinical facilities, including a small animal hospital and first opinion practices. Students can also enjoy the onsite café, gym, student barn and abundant green spaces, alongside our much-celebrated welcoming and supportive community of staff and students.
