Industry opportunities on this course are diverse, to ensure you develop the skills, experience and connections needed for your graduate career. Many of our students get their graduate roles with their work placement employers
Work placements and experience
These form part of optional modules, alongside an optional integrated placement year. We’ll support you to secure a placement with a UK-based or international employer, to match your interests and career goals – you’ll complete coursework. Placements can be paid or unpaid, depending on position. Students have worked with organisations such as the Blue Cross, Cotswold Dog Spa, Wood Veterinary Group and BSAVA.
Our commercial canine and equine therapy centres also offer opportunities for students to gain industry experience ready for their careers – either on work placements or as part of voluntary roles. Alongside this, we’ll encourage you to find a voluntary role with a local organisation such as an animal rescue shelter, veterinary laboratory, wildlife rehabilitation centre or a zoo.
