Who studies veterinary nursing? Veterinary nurses (or VNs as they are often known) work with veterinary surgeons to provide animal care. Most work within a veterinary surgery or hospital. Their work often includes client advice, minor surgical procedures, diagnostic tests and medical treatments while supervised by a vet, as well as the nursing care of in-patients. Some go on to become practice managers, ensuring the smooth day-to-day running of the surgery or hospital. If you are considering these courses you will obviously need to have an interest in animals, and a desire to work with them in a practical hands-on way, while also learning the theory behind the practice.

A wide range of assessment methods are used. Where modules contain specific veterinary nursing content there is always an exam component, whether essay exam, multiple choice/short answer questions or practical exam. There may also be course work presentations or assignments in the assessment of these modules. Both coursework and exam elements must be passed.

One of the best agricultural universities in the UK - you'll get so much practical experience here. The staff really care for you, and there are great opportunities to be had. The countryside surrounding the university is so beautiful, with Ironbridge Gorge a particularly gobsmacking highlight. There’s a few pubs in Newport itself, but not much else although the SU bar is great fun and you are a cheap taxi away from Birmingham or Wolverhampton, which are amazing cities to go out in.

INCREDIBLE. When I first looked around Harper they talked about the 'harper spirit'. This is a real thing! Everyone at harper will help eachother out and there is a real feeling of 'togetherness'. I honestly cannot reccomend Harper Adams enough.
