The Veterinary Nursing foundation degree at Aberystwyth University enables you to study animal health and management topics relating to small animals (dogs, cats, small mammals) and horses, with some reference to large animals. The course combines theoretical and practical learning, with a work placement in a veterinary practice as an integral part of the course. As the home of the only Veterinary School in Wales (Aberystwyth School of Veterinary Science), we have excellent facilities to support your studies, including a clinical skills lab, research and anatomy laboratories, an equine teaching centre and university farms. This course is subject to accreditation.
