    I'm going to be studying zoology or Bioveterinary science at uni next year(....probably zoology) and I really want to go on a placement the summer before I start. Would anyone have any suggestions on where I could go or how I could find out about opportunities.
    Thanks in advance

    I'm assuming you're currently in Year 13? If you were a first year undergraduate then I'd say it's not easy but possible, but if you're not even at university yet then I think (being realistic here) you're going to struggle to get a placement. There are some formal schemes for Year 12 students but I'm not aware of any formal summer schemes for Year 13s. If you live near any universities, you could try sending some emails to see if they'd be able to offer you anything (if you're willing to work unpaid, that might improve your chances). I sort of did this in Year 13 and spent a nice week shoving snow through sieves in a walk-in freezer.

    Otherwise, I think you may be better off waiting for first year because there will be (more interesting) opportunities available for you then.
