Course content

The course is designed to give you the opportunity to gain practical nursing clinical competency based on an underpinning knowledge of veterinary nursing practice to further your veterinary career. You can then become eligible for entry onto the veterinary nurses' register*. Experts from the field of animal care and veterinary nursing will deliver guest lectures, and you’ll take part in discussion forums and group work.

You’ll need to be fully committed to attending college for one day a week for a total of 36 weeks per year for 2 years, and to carrying out study in your own time. You’ll be assessed through:

  • Group critiques
  • Projects
  • Portfolio of work
  • Presentations

  • Written and practical examinations

On completion, you’ll gain a City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing, after which you’ll be eligible to register as a veterinary nurse*.

*You’ll be eligible to join the RCVS Register of Veterinary Nurse and will be a fully qualified veterinary nurse once you have successfully completed the Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing, the RCVS nursing progress log and City and Guilds objective structured clinical examinations and have a log of 2100 hours in your training practice.

You'll need at least 5 GCSEs at grade C or above, which must include Maths, English Language (or Welsh First Language) and at least 1 science subject.

You’ll also need to be employed in a small animal veterinary practice – if yours is not already a Training Practice, we’ll work with them to gain Training Practice status.
