We currently take final year veterinary students from now on for a maximum of two weeks, and we will also consider fourth year veterinary students on a case-by-case basis.

At this stage we are not taking on any nursing students, prospective vet students or those from courses outside of the veterinary course.

Applications will only be open from the 1st of July each year and students can only book for the year that they will be in final year. Bookings can only be made for the next year (if you would like to apply for prac in 2017 then you can only book in after July 1st in 2016).
How to apply:
