WHY CHOOSE THIS DEGREE?
What will I learn?
The programme has a firm science foundation, including the specialist nursing, behaviour and research skills needed to develop industry-relevant knowledge. You will also gain valuable industry insight through visits, guest speakers and work placements.
You will learn through a combination of lectures, laboratory sessions, practical work in veterinary practice along with guided and independent work. You will have the opportunity (subject to demand) to participate in animal training and behaviour and large animal handling. A study tour is also available to South Africa or Costa Rica in the third year of the programme.
Where can I go from here?
After successfully completing the course and 1,800 hours of work placement, you can register as a Veterinary Nurse (subject to ‘fitness to practice’ guidelines of the RCVS). You could also continue study on the final year of a relevant BSc (Hons) programme such as the BSc (Hons) Animal Management, BSc (Hons) Applied Animal Behaviour or BSc (Hons) Zoo Biology Top-ups offered at University Centre Sparsholt.
Sparsholt graduates are employed in small animal practice, equine practice and referral hospitals and have the skills needed to work in research, the pharmaceutical industry, laboratories, zoological/wildlife parks and in education.
