Untitled Page Full description

If you love animals and want to help protect and care for them, our course is for you. It’s approved by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) so when you graduate, you’ll have the skills you need to apply to register with them as a veterinary nurse.

You’ll get 2,450 hours of placement experience, working with animals in RCVS-approved veterinary training practices. In the classroom you’ll also get a grounding in scientific theory, with a particular focus on animal behaviour and welfare.

Your choice of modules will affect the material you cover. By choosing certain modules you’ll be on your way towards qualifying for the academic part of the new Pet Behaviour Counselling Award.

Your classes will be split between the College of West Anglia at Milton, near Cambridge, and Anglia Ruskin’s campus in the centre of Cambridge. Your year will be divided into 2 semesters, and you’ll attend around 12 hours of classes per week.

You should have an interest in the health and welfare of animals, and a good communicator who enjoys working as part of a team. You should also have a clear understanding of the range of practical work done in veterinary practices, so it would be helpful if you did some relevant work experience before applying.
