We accept current veterinary students and any qualified vets or trainee/qualified vet nurses, for a minimum of 3 weeks. A placement provides valuable experience and knowledge in dealing with “exotic” animals, which the current veterinary curriculum does not cover extensively.
For younger students aiming to gain places at veterinary college, we encourage you to get as much experience as possible in general veterinary practices / farms / animal shelters etc. as this will be of most relevance to you.
We offer work experience to students interested in environmental education as well as PGCE and BEd placements. We are currently recruiting for an education internship.
We offer work experience to students from Year 10 upwards. Please apply as soon as possible, as we are limited in the number of students that we can accommodate and get booked up well in advance.
We offer 2 places for Year 10 students per year. We also offer placements to Horticultural students from colleges and universities. Please apply as soon as possible.
