You will need to go to veterinary school in order to become any kind of vet. What exactly do you mean by bradding?

Edit: I've seen from your other post you mean breeding. Yes, you need to go to vet school to become a vet, and then complete an internship and potentially residency in your chosen specialisms in order to specialise. Hope this helps. :smile:

Hi,

To become a veterinary surgeon you will have to do a degree, i think it takes 5-6 years. If you are thinking of becoming a veterinary nurse, it can be done in a number of different ways university/college at varying course lengths around 2-3 years. You could more than likely do a specific equine veterinary nurse course. If your main focus is on breeding maybe you could an equine science degree but you couldn't become a vet from just doing that. I Would look on the UCAS website for different course options, speak to some course leaders of courses you are interested in and maybe see if you can volunteer at some vets, speak to some vets to see what the reality of being a vet looks like and research exactly what you would like to achieve at the end of the course you choose.

Good luck

You would still need to do a full veterinary science degree. You pick which sector you want to go into once you graduate (equine vs farm vs small vs mixed).

You would then as a graduate have the option to go and do further training via internships/residency if you chose to do so.
