Studying at Hartpury has been brilliant for me. I’ve developed my skills, made lots of friends, and I’ve got great industry connections.
My Hartpury experience
Hartpury is a great place to study, with lots of support
I really enjoy being able to gain practical skills alongside the theory. We use the Veterinary Nursing Centre for our practical sessions, as well as the equine centre and yard, the reptile room and the Walled Animal Garden, where we get to work with different animals.
Although I’ll become an equine veterinary nurse, it’s interesting to learn how to handle and care for domestic and exotic species.
My work placement
The year-long placement really attracted me to the course. It meant I was able to get stuck into being at a practice and really feel what it’s really like to be a veterinary nurse.
I’ve developed my skills in real-world situations, which has helped to keep driving towards the career that I want. I’ve even been offered a job for when I graduate.
My placement has made me love the profession so much more. I’m finally starting to feel that, not only is my dream possible, but it’s actually starting to come true.Read Tizzy's blog
