Studying Veterinary Nursing

What to look forward to

Learn from the best in the industry and one of the leading Veterinary nursing courses in the country.

In collaboration with the College of Animal Welfare, you’ll be taught through a combination of skills training in labs and on placement as well as theoretical modules aimed at preparing you for practice.

Get equipped with the right skills and experience

Both our BSc and top-up courses are focused on preparing you for practice through by building both your hard skills and experience. We do this through a combination of both theory-based modules and practical skills training. You will first learn by observing, and then through practicing in our skills labs or on placement.

You’ll also be asked to critically analyse your learnings through a dissertation as well as theory-based presentations and workshops. This will help you not only to build your understanding of the research and concepts behind your practice, but also to develop your communication skills for your future career.

  • We're back on campus for teaching

    Your timetable will be built around teaching time using our facilities on campus with online sessions for some activities where being virtual adds value. That means it’s not going to be like 2020 over again. We've combined the best of our pre-pandemic teaching with what's worked best for students while they've been learning at home.

    We’ve planned your learning so it has most benefit for you:

    • You’ll be on campus for practical skills training and assessments in small groups which will provide a safe space for you to gets hands on experience in our labs and learn directly from tutors and colleagues

    • You’ll be taught online for your theory-based modules as well as learner reviews and tutorials.
  • Innovative teaching that's enhanced by technology

    Our teaching and learning approach is evidence-based and designed using feedback from students and staff during the pandemic and in previous years.

    For example, our students particularly liked using the whiteboards functions online and it helped them work well in groups.

    We also use technology to enhance your learning and put you in control, like polls, virtual whiteboards, and quizzes during lectures so you can interact live.

    Tech also allows us to add innovative new ways of assessing your learning, as we ensured there was a way to do proctored assessments even online.

Learn from highly experienced tutors

Our courses are run in partnership with the College of Animal Welfare (CAW), who continue to provide some of the best training for veterinary nurses in the country.

CAW continues to stay on top of industry shifts and provide you with the most up-to-date training available.

Explore the subject in a flexible approach

As we know how difficult it can be to juggle your course work, practice, and home life, our programmes are designed to be flexible. You can choose to study at whatever campus is closest to you whether that’s London, Huntingdon, or Leeds.

We also run the course in a blended learning approach, meaning some of your modules will be held online. While you’re on placement, this means you can still keep up with your studies and progress logs.
