Work Experience

Due to the significant amount of overseas travel involved in our work, we are unfortunately unable to accommodate students in our practice for work experience or extramural studies, except for specialist research projects based in the office.

If you are looking for work experience in a veterinary practice, you may wish to consult the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeon's website (www.rcvs.org.uk) to locate a practice near you.
