We can only accept one student at a tme and you must be over the minimum age of 15 at the time of your placement.

Placement Students Considering Applying to Become a Veterinary Surgeon

As with a career into veterinary nursing, the academic ability is very important when selecting students for our work inspiration programme.

Those students who are predicted grades 7-9 in GCSE in subjects including Maths, English and Science subjects will be accepted.

As competition is fierce academically able post-GCSE students wishing to follow a career in veterinary medicine are welcome to apply independantly. They are recommended to build a portfolio of evidence to support their university application, which can be undertaken at the surgery.
