Our innovative learning approach ensures you graduate armed with the skills to undertake a range of diagnostic tests, medical treatments and minor surgical procedures, under veterinary direction.
We seek students who can demonstrate the right acumen for this challenging course.

I loved Middlesex a lot, my time here was very inspiring and there was so much to do on campus and in town. You’re not too far from London, with Camden 15 minutes away on the tube which has some great student nights on during the week. There’s also loads of amazing societies and events on campus and I found getting involved incredibly rewarding, and the university was very welcoming to all of its students. The careers service also helped me find a wide range of employment during my course, and prepared me for the real world!
