There are increasing employment opportunities within veterinary nursing and the animal health industry. Because of the vocational nature of the course, the content is a balance between practical work (vital to gain the necessary experience to become a qualified nurse) and the intellectual skills needed for a degree. You will learn practical skills at Harper Adams via short block release completed during vacations and during the work placement year.
Students on the Veterinary Nursing with Companion Animal Behaviour pathway will study diagnosis and treatment of behavioural problems. To obtain the nursing qualification a minimum of 1800 hours is spent working in a registered veterinary nurse training practice, both as short block release and during the sandwich year. This hands-on experience complements the applied animal health, nursing, business and welfare sciences studied at Harper Adams.

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.
