We offer placements to vet students as part of their extra-mural studies whilst studying at university. These are run as two week blocks in either equine or farm.

We have a large number of vets with diverse experience and post graduate qualifications ready to teach and aid you in getting the most from your placement. We insist on two week periods so you can become familiar with the diaries, team and vice versa.

The equine department comprises the clinic work which is largely orthopaedic based, including referral, as well as some surgery and medicine.

The farm practice does a large proportion of dairy work so a passion for dairy practice is essential.
